  16. 16. 16www.technologyenhancedlearning.net What Are Digital Literacies? In the 21st century IT competence needed by – learners – teachers – professionals – everybody (>90% jobs require IT competence of some degree) Seven separate ‘literacies’ contribute to 3 areas – Content Production – Content Consumption – Professional and Academic Practice
  17. 17. 17www.technologyenhancedlearning.net The Digital Literacies
  18. 18. 18www.technologyenhancedlearning.net Digital Literacies • ICT / Computer Literacy Ranges from basic keyboard skills to the ability to explore, understand and evaluate new technologies • Information Literacy Find, interpret, evaluate, organise, manipulate, share and record information e.g. •working with documents, presentations and spreadsheets •choosing and using cloud services e.g. •understanding issues of authority, reliability, provenance •knowledge of IPR, plagiarism, citation
  19. 19. 19www.technologyenhancedlearning.net And ….. • Media Literacy Consumption and production of high quality media outputs needs a sophisticated understanding of audience, creator, message and technology • Communication and Collaboration Digital networks for sharing and collaboration in support of knowledge, scholarship, research and learning e.g. •Selecting transmission means most suited to target audience •Use of text, video and audio editing software e.g. •Email, online forums, chat rooms, social networks, webinar •Collaborating in online documents & interactive events
  20. 20. 20www.technologyenhancedlearning.net Not forgetting ….. • Digital Scholarship Open publishing is beginning to redefine what is meant by the term ‘scholarly’ • Learning Skills The ability to study and learn effectively in technology- rich environments. e.g. •An academic’s blog might have 1000s of followers •Academic debates in an online community of practice •Mandates for Open Access Publishing e.g. •Think critically, academic writing, referencing, managing tasks •Receive assessment and acting on feedback in digital formats
  21. 21. 21www.technologyenhancedlearning.net And finally …… • Being a Professional • Also known as Life Planning, this puts digital literacies into a distinct framework in support of an individual’s employability. • Having the knowledge and skills to act ethically, responsibly and safely in the digital world are vital aspects of this element. e.g. • Digital tools, services, social networks can be used, to aid reflection and build an ePortfolio. • Online promotion through blogs, Twitter, Facebook, website • Knowing what others can find out about you on the Internet • Use digital tools to support PDP and CPD.
