  • 2. Outline
    • Defining literacy and digital literacy
    • Why we are refocusing on digital literacy
      • Web 2.0
  • 3. Ask yourself these questions
    • How might “this” work or not work? Why?
    • How might “this” benefit me?
    • How might “this” add to my instruction?
  • 4. What is literacy?
    • What do we consider to be the main characteristics of literacy?
    • How do doctors obtain these skills?
  • 5. Literacy meanings
    • Able to read and write
    • Literacy is deliberately taught and consciously and deliberately learned.
  • 6. Then, what is digital literacy?
    • What are its defining characteristics?
    • How do they differ from the traditional views of literacy?
  • 7. Digital Literacy
    • Digital literacy is "the ability to understand and use information in multiple formats from a wide range of sources when it is presented via computers" ( 1 )
    • 1. Gilster, Paul. Digital Literacy .  New York: Wiley and Computer Publishing, 1997. p. 1.
  • 8. But are doctors tech-savvy?
  • 9. Tech savvy versus digitally literate
    • We need to reconsider our wording, our definitions.
    • What’s the difference here?
  • 10. What if we don’t adapt?
    • “ If doctors are prepared only for the foundational literacies of book, paper, and pencil technologies, they will be unprepared for a future in which the new literacies are required by new information and communication technologies.”
    • (1, Karchmer et al. pg. 1)
  • 11. What is the reason for a new or revised focus on digital literacy?
  • 12. The changing digital environment
    • Technology has shifted from the personal experience to the community experience.
    • To share our lives, our knowledge, our experiences.
    • This is a societal shift, not a niche phenomenon.
  • 13. Web 2.o at a glimpse

      • audio (podcasts)
      • video (YouTube)
      • text (blogs, wikis)
      • folksonomies (tagging @ amazon.com, del.icio.us)
