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:
- web design
- video design
- wiki design
- newspaper layout
- broadcast recording
- internet searching
- web 2.0 media
- social media
- 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.
