 (Why You Should Care About Technology)
What Exactly is Digital Literacy?

 • There is no standard definition
 • Popular views are…
                                                      A person’s ability to perform tasks
                                                      effectively in a digital environment...
                                                      (Connecting the Digital Dots: Literacy of the
   It’s having a fundamental understanding            21st Century)
   of computers (Microsoft Digital Literacy
   curriculum – 2012)
                                         It’s the ability to locate, organize, understand,
                                         evaluate, and analyze information using digital
                                         technology. (Wikipedia)



   The ability to understand and use information in
   multiple formats from a wide range of sources when it is
   presented via computers. (Paul Gilster, Digital Literacy)
Content Was Physically Separate

 The Old World
                 •   Books/Magazines: paper-based
                 •   Video: VCR tapes, DVDs
                 •   Music: CDs
                 •   Photos: film cameras
                 •   Shopping: in-person
                 •   Payments: cash, credit cards
                 •   Research: libraries, bookstores
                 •   Directions: maps, the “gas station”
                 •   Communication: in-person, phone
One Device Can Pull All Types of Content

  The New World
                       •   Books/Magazines: tablet
                       •   Video: cloud streamed
                       •   Music: mp3, cloud
                       •   Photos: digital cameras
                       •   Shopping: online
                       •   Payments: mobile, EFT
                       •   Research: search engines
                       •   Directions: GPS
                       •   Communication: chat, text
Digital Literacy is…
                                               TM
       “Life Skills for an Electronic World”
Knowing How to Use:



   •   Personal Computers
   •   Mobile Phones and Tablets
   •   Digital Cameras
   •   GPS and Auto Technology
   •   Entertainment (A/V)
   •   Even accessories…
So, Why Should You Care?
•   Your Lifestyle
•   Your Job
•   Your Conversations
•   Your Happiness…

     Will all depend on being Digitally Literate

     But, Here’s Why You Should Get Excited!
• It Saves Time: Being
  digitally literate can save
  hours per month for tasks
  that could only be done
  offline in the past.




The Bank      The Store   The Post Office
• You Learn Faster: Study at your own pace,
  lookup words, data, facts, figures. Try new
  things (and some old) without fear.
• You Save Money: Coupon codes, daily deal
  sites, comparison shopping sites and mobile
  apps, make it easier than ever to get the best
  product at the best price.
• It Makes You Safer: From checking
  medications, traveling abroad, to fixing your
  home – do more things safely.
• It Keeps You Informed: From minor traffic
  annoyances to life threatening natural
  disasters, new apps save lives and sanity.
IMHO

• It Keeps You Connected: Technology allows
  you to talk to anyone, anytime, on your own
  terms.




            OMG
                           LOL
• You’ll Make Better Decisions: Digital literacy
  allows you to search, study, analyze and
  compare everything at any time.
• It Can Keep You Employed: Most jobs today
  require some form of computer skills
  including jobs outside the traditional office.
                                       Ability to use proprietary software
              QUALIFICATIONS:

                                        Experience in mobile applications

                                 Expertise in all Microsoft Office products

                                               Exceptional computer skills

                           Strong verbal and written communication skills
• It Makes You
  Happier (LOL):
  No matter how
  technically
  advanced the
  world gets, we
  will always love
  creativity and a
  good laugh.
• YOU Can Influence the World: Thousands of
  babies are born around the world each day.
  We never know who will be the next great
  leader. Through politics, religion, activism and
  even entertainment, people have brought
  change to places they didn’t know existed.
Now What?
• Learn about the vast resources online
• Use those tools online…
          to live a more fulfilling life offline
• Share the knowledge and help others
  experience the benefits of digital literacy
