Digital literacy

What are digital literacies?

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.)

Contact your Subject Librarian to discuss your students' digital literacy needs.
