Digital Skills and Digital Literacy: knowing the difference and teaching both
I was delighted to be notified on Twitter that a recent Literacy Today article heavily features my work around digital literacies. The main article by Baha Mali is accompanied by a ‘sidebar’ by Ian O'Byrne (a friend and valuable contributor to the Web Literacy Map work I led at Mozilla).
The focus of the article is on the Eight Essential Elements of Digital Literacies that I outline in my thesis, TEDx talk, and ebook.
Update (8th January 2016): I’ve been asked by the editor of Literacy Today to remove the link to the PDF. However, it’s been selected as one of the articles which will become open-access in February 2016. The link will appear via the magazine website.
Update (3rd February 2016): These articles are now freely available online:
- Knowing the Difference Between Digital Skills and Digital Literacies, and Teaching Both
- Perspectives of Digital Literacies
