In a world where there is an estimated 5 trillion megabytes of data on the internet, it is important as elearning professionals to know how to traverse this ever-expanding information. We may each think we are digitally literate, but are we truly at the level we need to be? What about our learners and our employees? Have we considered yet how to help and ensure our learners and/or employee are just as confident in using the internet to explore and extract the information they are seeking? This course will help participants to understand what digital literacy is and what is required to be capable and proficient in seeking, surfing, analyzing and creating data on the internet.

  6. 6. What struck me? “Digital media literacy continues its rise in importance as a key skill in every discipline and profession.This challenge, first noted in 2008, reflects universal agreement among those on the Horizon ProjectAdvisory Board.Although there is broad consensus that digital media literacy is vitally important for today’s students, what skills constitute digital literacy are still not well-defined nor universally taught. Teacher preparation programs are beginning to include courses related to digital media literacy, and universities are beginning to fold these literacy skills into coursework for students, but progress continues to be slow.The challenge is exacerbated by the fact that digital technologies morph and change quickly at a rate that generally outpaces curriculum development.” Johnson, L., Smith, R., Willis, H., Levine, A., and Haywood, K., (2011).

  11. 11. How do you view new tools?
  12. 12. When a new online tool or app comes out that is all the buzz how are you most likely to react to it? 1. I have enough already that meet my needs. 2. I at least have a look at it. 3. I test it out - and drop it when friends drop it. 4. I test it out - only dropping it if it does nothing for me. 5. I become the Jedi master of it and share it with everyone...I collect tools/apps.
