  18. 18. How do students think they learn best? “I prefer practical learning as I like to do things and get bored when just listening to someone talking. I do quite well when working in a group as well as it gives me more ideas and opinions”“Through repetition. I like to study independently initiallybut then to consolidate the learning I like to discuss it andhave feedback on it. I have a low attention span and sofind a lot of reading and quiet time very hard work. I like tointeract with people and so the discussion and debate ofideas appeals to me greatly” “I learn best from doing things or thinking through a problem with other people or by writing something down, drawing it. I dont learn much by just reading something”

  31. 31. "Digital Literacy is about mastering ideas, not keystrokes"Gilster, 1997
  32. 32. "Digital Literacy is a condition, not a threshold" Martin, 2006
  33. 33. <literate></illiterate>"It is really not possible to speak of illiterate and literate persons as two distinct categories" (unesco 1957)Source
  34. 34. "Digital literacy defines those capabilities which fit an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society" JISC
  35. 35. Be Different"As educators, we need to stop doing the things for our students that we used to have to do under a system where we didnt have access and we didnt have some of the technological affordances that we have today. We need to restructure education so students do the things that the Internet allows them to do for themselves and we as educators start to take advantage of the different ways of interacting in a class setting." George Siemens 2009
  36. 36. Horizon Report NZ 2011Digital literacy is a key skill in every disciplineand professionMost academics are not using new andcompelling technologies for learning & teaching,nor for their own researchThe abundance of resources & relationshipseasily accessible via the Internet challenges us
