It’s Sunday morning, a great time to do some thinking and reflecting. Go and get a warm beverage and your thinking cap; this post is going to take half an hour of your time.
Step 1 (5 mins)
Watch this presentation by Tabetha Newman: Digital literacy literature review: from terminology to action (click Menu –> View Fullscreen for best results):
I think we can agree that Tabetha’s work provides a starting point from which we can start to align and move towards operationalising ‘digital literacy’. With that in mind, move to Step 2.
Step 2 (21 mins)
Listen to this recent RSA talk on The Future of Wikileaks. The whole thing, including Q&A, is an hour but the talk itself is only about 21 minutes.
Step 3 (variable)
Informed by what you’ve learned in Steps 1 and 2, how much ‘digital literacy’ do you think it takes to:
- Run Wikileaks?
- Be part of the Wikileaks network?
- Submit something to Wikileaks?
Answers in the comment section below. Please don’t answer these questions if you haven’t done steps 1 and 2 – you’d be missing the point.
