  • @francesbell Oh absolutely. There is no way that something that can be represented on-screen can ever represent the rich tapestry of life. But we have to start *somewhere*! ;-)

  • I like the necessary but not sufficient analogy. This could also usefully be applied to badges IMHO. The literacies will always way exceed in richness the way in which they can be measured, and gaming badges could be come a destructive distraction. But then I am just and old, feminist cynic.

  • @francesbell Hi Frances, this work ties in closely with Mozilla's Webmakers campaign/programme and with Open Badges. The idea is to create a 'generation of webmakers' and therefore the focus is upon web literacies rather than digital literacies.

    My thinking around this is ongoing, but I see web literacies as a subset of digital literacies. That is to say, being 'web literate' is a necessary but not sufficient condition of being 'digitally literate'. There's also a 'computational thinking' angle that I need to work in there somewhere... :-)

  • @laperryman Hi Leigh-Anne, absolutely! I rushed this a bit so it's not as clear as it eventually will be. There's an almost unlimited combination of web skills with literacies leading to badges. The ones I included in this document were merely examples. :-)

  • Doug, regarding the badged groups of competencies, is there an argument for splitting Creator into Web Creator and Web Expression? I think Web Citizen stands alone as a really important competency group and I can see where you're going with Web Protector (though it currently feels the most abstract of the three groupings). However, with interest pathways in mind, I think it's possible that Web 'Creators' are sometimes a different group of people than Web 'Expressors' - people using the Web to tell and share their stories (narrative and collaborative creativity) without necessarily creating new Web based objects/environments.
