Developing Digital Literacies Developing Digital Literacies Presentation Transcript

  • Developing Digital Literacies: What it means for your organisation http://www.jiscrsc.ac.uk/digitalliteracy.aspx #JISCDIGLIT
  • Digital Literacy How are you preparing your learners for work and life in a world permeated with digital technologies? What skills and behaviours will your learners have when they leave your organisation? | slide
  • Why is Digital Literacy Important? "Many learners enter further and higher education lacking the skills needed to apply digital technologies to education. As 90% of new jobs will require excellent digital skills, improving digital literacy is an essential component of developing employable graduates. Courses that embed core digital skills, as well as subject specific use of technology, enable students to gain the skills and confidence they need to use digital technology not only to support their learning but also in the workplace."
