Digital Guernsey Presentation

  1. 1. DIGITAL LITERACY Simon Le Tocq GTA University CENTRE
  2. 2. Setting the scene • Nature of work is changing • Networked society • Rapid techno and socio-techno change • Future workforce ‘Born digital’ • The average 13-17 year old owns six digital devices (Logicalis, 2013) The three ‘r’s are no longer enough.. We Need new literacies for successful participation in society (Trans literacies)
  3. 3. BORN digital “For my 1 year old daughter, A Magazine Is an iPad That Does Not Work. It will remain so her whole life. Steve jobs has coded a part of her os”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXV-yaFmQNk
  4. 4. what is literacy? ACquiring literacy does not involve memorising sentences, words or syllables … but rather an attitude of creation and re-creation, a self- transformation producing a stance of intervention in one's context." Paulo Freire, Education: The Practice of Freedom (1973) The Ability to identify, understand, interpret, create, communicate and compute, using printed and written materials associated with varying contexts UNESCO (2004)
  5. 5. the Difference between A literacy and A skill First, we would expect literacies to be foundational capabilities such as reading, writing or numeracy, on which more particular life skills depend. Literacies (and their lack) must have a lifelong, lifewide impact: they are practices without which a learner is impoverished in relation to culturally valued knowledge. Helen Beetham, 2013
  6. 6. but is digital really a literacy? First, we would expect literacies to be foundational capabilities such as reading, writing or numeracy, on which more particular life skills depend. Literacies (and their lack) must have a lifelong, lifewide impact: they are practices without which a learner is impoverished in relation to culturally valued knowledge. On these grounds, it makes sense to talk about literacy, or literacies, of the digital. Helen Beetham, 2013
  7. 7. BORN DIGITAL BUT.. The Average digital birth of children happens at about 6 months can’t wait to get out of here ... I so need a new phone a new phone!
  8. 8. BORN DIGITAL ≠ DIGITALLY LITERATE Jaron lanier “This review has summarised a wealth of evidence to show that today’s young people have inadequate digital literacy skills. There is often a large gap in students’ perception versus the reality of their digital literacy”. Dr. Tabitha Newman (A Review of Digital Literacy in 3-16 Year Olds)
  9. 9. We all fall somewhere along a continuum between Digital Visitor and Digital Resident, from very occasional online interaction, like accessing your bank account, to the evolution of a complex online presence through a variety of platforms.” Judy Bloxham (JISC, 2013)) WHITE and Le Cornu, (2011) DIGITAL RESIDENTS and digital visitors
  10. 10. so, DIGITAL LITERACY is about learning how to use an iPad, isn’t it? I WILL practise "thinking" digital literacy instead OF "tool-based" digital literacy
  11. 11. “WE shape our tools and thereafter our tools shape us” Marshall McLuHan www.spritzinc.com
  12. 12. A definition To be digitally literate is to have access to a broad range of practices and cultural resources that you are able to apply to digital tools. It is the ability to make and share meaning in different modes and formats; to create, collaborate and communicate effectively and to understand how and when digital technologies can best be used to support these processes futurelab, 2010
  13. 13. (here’s A shorter definition) Digital literacies define those who exhibit a critical understanding and capability for living, learning and working in the digital society. jisc, (2013)
  14. 14. digital literacy as an entitlement In this increasingly digital world, digital literacy is an important entitlement which enables people to actively participate in their cultures and communities. Developing students’ digital literacy furnishes them with the skills, knowledge and understanding that will help them to take a full and active part in social, cultural, economic, civic and intellectual life now and in the future. futurelab, 2010
