  2. 2. Digital Literacies Info Management Creating Materials Effective Communication Identity Digital Literacies are the way people use digital technology, to achieve any objective. Can be broken down into 4 parts as shown.

  4. 4. Online Identity Arguably the most important part of Digital Literacies, so here we’re going to do something a bit different. We’re going to show you how information might be gathered about you online. Video!
  5. 5. Nothing to do with me… It is easy to think that this doesn’t matter to you, for a number of reasons:  Since all privacy settings are set to “Only friends” or equivalent. But, many don’t know that every time Facebook updates its terms and conditions (even just changing one word), and you accept, everything changes back to public  Many people believe that Facebook and others don’t know that much about them…

  8. 8. Google Maps History Instructions 1. Visit 2. Scroll down to “Location History” 3. Then press “View Location History” 4. Now you can navigate along the timeline

This is most important us, as we are both the group who needs jobs, and who are also most likely to be photographed on the floor of Jesters drenched in last nights Jesticle…
