Exploring Digital Literacies Across the Curriculum
Digital tools and the content they generate are reshaping the nature of literacy. In the digital era, literacy is no longer contained to reading and writing and can no longer be fostered exclusively through the ability to search for and find credible information. In this era of knowledge abundance, new digital literacies are required. These include, but are not limited to, analyzing and vetting the credibility of a constant barrage of digital information, deciphering complex visual content, using digital technologies, creating and adapting digital content within copyright permissions, and mindfully cultivating one’s own digital presence. As educators, we must simultaneously foster our own digital literacies and strive to design learning experiences that cultivate our student’s literacies, as well.
The CCC Digital Learning Day program is designed to spark your imagination, improve your digital literacy, and identify promising pedagogical applications of digital tools.
