Defining Digital Literacies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What does digital literacies mean, and why is it plural?! "Digital Literacies" are often used as an umbrella term to encompass media, information, and data literacies (among others). Participants will reflect on what they know about digital literacies and broaden their understanding through interactions with their colleagues. We will engage with and critique several models, including Virginia Tech, Jisc, and Belshaw's Elements. Through active pedagogy, including a jigsaw discussion, participants will explore critical components of digital literacies. Participants will leave able to craft their own definition to shape programming, incorporate into instructional activities, and share with their communities.

Participants will:
  • Analyze digital literacies definitions and models in order to deepen understanding of the concept.
  • Implement initiatives, programming, and activities in order to encourage digital literacies at their institutions.
  • Reflect on the meaning of digital literacies in order to develop their own digital fluency.
