Think about the things you do online. They might be things you are just learning to do, or things that are so much a part of your life that you barely stop to think about them. These are your digital literacies.
They help you to live, work, learn and play in your online life and your real life.
Digital literacy for your students
Do your students need to use digital literacy skills in assessment tasks? (E.g. create a blog, a digital poster, a video etc.)
The Student Digital Skills Hub can be found within subject Moodle sites and from the Useful Links menu in Moodle. It was created in response to student feedback that they want more support in developing their digital skills, in order to be prepared for the digital environments of their lives and future careers.
The Hub contains:
Information about digital capabilities and why they're important
A self-evaluation tool to improve digital skills
Help resources, FAQs, and the opportunity to submit a query for further support
The self-evaluation ‘Discovery Tool’ enables students to rate their levels of confidence across six areas of digital capabilities. The tool also:
Delivers a personalised report on students’ digital skills
Identifies areas of strength and development
Provides access to an extensive resource bank to help students develop their digital capabilities
Digital literacy for staff
The development of strong digital literacy skills is an ongoing process which facilitates the effective and innovative use of technology and digital spaces in teaching, learning and research.
