  3. 3. From: Michelle Blake <michelle.blake@york.ac.uk> Date: 7 April 2016 at 09:25 Subject: Future Learn To: Susan Halfpenny <susan.halfpenny@york.ac.uk> Hi, I have just found out that John Robinson is very interested in us producing a MOOC on digital literacy as part of the Future Learn partnership. Cheers, Michelle
  4. 4. From: Susan Halfpenny <susan.halfpenny@york.ac.uk> Date: 13 April 2016 at 10:57 Subject: Re: Future Learn To: Michelle Blake <michelle.blake@york.ac.uk> Hi Michelle, This sounds like an interesting opportunity. Do you know what he has in mind? I'm not sure about the concept of delivering a MOOC to develop digital literacy capabilities as such. I think it would be interesting to maybe take this kind of approach if we decided to develop a MOOC at York - something about digital citizenship? Cheers, Susan
  5. 5. From: Michelle Blake <michelle.blake@york.ac.uk> Date: 20 April 2016 at 19:26 Subject: Re: Future Learn To: Susan Halfpenny <susan.halfpenny@york.ac.uk> This is really interesting. I like the digital citizenship angle - is this something you think we could confidently develop? My other thought (not fully thought through) is something around how to think critically/question things (including society!) - would that be along/included in the kind of thing you were thinking? Thanks, Michelle
  6. 6. Our motivation We wanted to move beyond the sphere of skills teaching to engage with a topic of social interest. Saw this as an opportunity to: > Showcase the academic research areas from across a range of departments; > Engage with a wide audience and potential applicants; > Develop participants’ digital literacies
  7. 7. The ‘digital citizen’ is a person who has developed the skills and knowledge to effectively use the internet and digital technologies, who uses digital technologies and the internet in a responsible and appropriate way in order to engage and participate in society and politics

  20. 20. Week 3: Digital participation and ethics  Digital engagement  Online responsibility & ethics  Democracy & free speech  Becoming a digital citizen “I would like to thank both the educators for their immense contribution and also my fellow learners, for their insightful and knowledgeable contributions put with both conviction and politeness. “They, perhaps more than anything, demonstrate what a digital citizen should be in the internet age. The challenge now is to make this the norm out there in cyberspace.” “I've really enjoyed my first MOOC and definitely feel more informed and aware about the pros and concerns of being a digital citizen and how to get the best out of digital technologies without falling foul of the potential hazards. Whether we're on the brink of a brave new world, an Orwellian dystopia or some nightmarish hyper-reality, only time will tell but I certainly feel better equipped to deal with the challenges and opportunities ahead. Thank-you to everyone involved! :) ”
