“Digital literacies are those capabilities which fit an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society” (http://www.jiscinfonet.ac.uk/infokits/digital-literacies/) JISC understands Digital Literacy to mean:
This project was initiated as a collaborative project within London Met to foster increased awareness and understanding of ‘digital literacies’ among both staff and students in the university. Phase 1 Research students’ understanding and use of digital technologies and establish a team of student Digital Ambassadors to help co-create an online resource Phase 2 Pilot a process of engaging staff from subject areas in the Art, Media, Design and Architecture faculty in partnership with the Digital Ambassadors to create bespoke digital literacies resources for their area.
Phase 1 What we discovered with a series of student interviews was that there was a huge variety in students’ Digital Literacies. We decided to use this diversity as a key part of the resource.
Workshops (by students) for other students and faculties Focus groups with staff in their teaching area and in their discipline The idea is to build up more dialogue and discussion between staff and students about what digital practice means… What next?
