  • Dr. Belshaw, your way of showing things was really fantastic. Something that called my attention was the definition of literacy presented by UNESCO (1957) in which the common sense of dichotomic YES or NO is shown to be not totally true. There is a great number of possibilities between being literate or not. But in your opinion, can we talk about a tendency to totally literate when speaking about future generations? Really thank you for the speech and for the answers to many unasked questions.

  • Hi, Dr. Belshaw. I would like to thank you for this great presentation. It was really clear and useful for me. I totally agree when you said that some people differ in their level of digital literacy and I would complement your argument by saying that this level of literacy may differ accordingly to the generation of time. For example generation X has different concepts about digital literacy than generation Y, for instance. Furthermore, I would like to know more examples about going beyond elegant consumption. Thank you.

  • Hi, Dr. Belshaw. It was really interesting listening about digital literacies. I loved that you used memes in your presentation, memes are a sensation here in Brazil. I have a pedagogical question. How digital literacies can be used in classroom and how do they influence our students? Thank you.

  • Hi, Dr. Belshaw! It was great learning about the digital literacy and how the using of Memes, remix and lolcats could be used to increase the learning of knowledge. I totally understood when you said that the remix is the heart of digital literacy and the other end of the spectrum of elegant consumption. By the way, i would like to know a little bit more about this concept. What would be the point of Elegant consumption in terms of Digital Literacies? (Plural, ;-)) Another thing, It was very interesting the way how digital literacy impact upon the world and the way that people behave in society at the same time that digital literacy is going faster and faster trough the years and decades because of the increasing of internet speed access and as a consequence the progressive development of it. i appreciate when you said that the focus on people interests is the best way to develop digital literacy and i think that that is the point when we talk about the roles of the teachers in this topic. Thank you!! Raphael camara

  • Hello Dr. Belshaw . I really liked the video. I love new technology and use a lot. Memes like and they are very popular in Brazil . Working with digital literacy is challenging and interesting . What is the perspective of a digital literacy that can reach all levels of education ? Jéssica Nathane Martins Mariz
