Digital Literacies - Access / Skills / Practicetechno-literacy choosing and using technologies, ICT & Web(access) skills, personalising the learning environment ....information literacy finding, accessing, evaluating, reviewing,(skills) using, analysing, managing, applying information literacy critical evaluation, creative production, data(skills) visualisation, expressing & sharing ideas ....academic practice critical thinking, research, problem solving,(practice) academic writing, analysis, synthesis, experimentation ....techno-social practice communication, collaboration, participating in(practice) networks, sharing, tagging, peer review ....
  19. 19. Digital Literacies - Digital Natives? ‣ Learners’ ICT skills are less advanced that educators think (Nicholas et al. 2008, JISC 2008-9) ‣ Learners’ engagement with digital media is complex and differentiated (Bennet et al. 2008, Hargittai, 2009) ‣ Learners’ experience many difficulties transposing practices from social context into formal learning (Cranmer 2006) ‣ Active knowledge building and sharing e.g. writing wikis, tagging, reviewing, recommending, repurposing, are minority activities to which most learners are introduced by educators (Selwyn 2009) ‣ Some aspects of learners’ everyday practice with technology are at odds with practices valued in traditional academic teaching (Beetham 2009)
  20. 20.
