  29. 29. Cn ConstructiveTHE 8 ELEMENTS“[Digital literacy is] the awareness, attitude andability of individuals to appropriately use digitaltools...in order to enable constructive social action.” DigEuLit project, quoted in Martin (2006)
  30. 30. Co CommunicativeTHE 8 ELEMENTS“Digital literacy must therefore involve a systematicawareness of how digital media are constructed and ofthe unique rhetorics of interactive communication.” Buckingham (2007)

  32. 32. “The creative adoption of new technology requires teacherswho are willing to take risks... a professional culture that isdominated by a prescriptive curriculum, routine practices... anda tight target-setting regime, is unlikely to be helpful.” Conlon & Simpson (2003)THE 8 ELEMENTS Cr Creative
  33. 33. “Once we see that online texts are not exactly written orspoken, we begin to understand that cyberliteracy requires aspecial form of critical thinking. Communication in the onlineworld is not quite like anything else.” Gurak (2001)THE 8 ELEMENTS Ct Critical

  36. 36. “And, whilst it may be possible to produce lists of the componentsof digital literacy, and to show how they fit together, it is notsensible to suggest that one specific model of digital literacy willbe appropriate for all people or, indeed, for one person over alltheir lifetime. Updating of understanding and competence will benecessary as individual circumstances change, and as changes inthe digital information environment bring the need for new freshunderstanding and new competencies; as Martin (2006a) puts it,digital literacy is "a condition, not a threshold".” (Bawden, 2008)
