RDL Week 2: What Others Have Developed

In my other life, I am a living, breathing librarian. I’m taking an ALA eCourse called Rethinking Digital Literacy to Serve Library Staff and Users. Here is where I will post a few responses and other “extended learning” assignments over the next month.

This week, we began by watching this video:

Upon finishing, we were asked to reflect on the following question:

What specific, identifiable digital skills and tools are they developing and using?

Here are a few that I can come up with after an initial viewing of the video and reflection:

Skills

  • web design
  • video design
  • wiki design
  • newspaper layout
  • broadcast recording
  • internet searching
  • web 2.0 media
  • social media

Tools

  • video conferencing
  • video recording
  • SMART boards
  • video design software
  • layout and publishing software and hardware

These are just initial reflections on one viewing. Do you see any others?

EDIT: I was looking through some work-related presentations and realized that there were key skills I neglected to mention, which are also part of digital literacy: collaboration, communication, critical thinking, project planning, creativity, curiosity, and initiative.
