Digital Literacy presentation for Shanghai American School Elementary School parents. Note all videos used in the presentation are embedded at http://www.theswivelchair.com/digital-literacy-for-parents/
I didn't embed them here as I only used snippets of the first 2. The last three are in the entirety, so I may get around to embedding one day!!

The first 3 minutes of Sir Ken Robinson was used. The last 3 minutes of Machine is using us was used.
Pmacoun's graphic outlining the 3 major areas of Digital Literacy was used.

This so-called  “singularity”  is  the arrival and rapid dissemination of digital technology in the last decades of the 20th century.”
