Digital literacies and why they’re important… for everyone!

(can’t see the video? click here!)

Nigel Robertson (@easegill) works at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, New Zealand. A few weeks back he asked if I’d have time to put together a short video about digital literacies for Digital Literacy @ Waikato Awareness Week.

He asked very nicely, so I looked at my calendar and carved out some time yesterday to put the above video together. It only took about 45 minutes from beginning (shooting the video) to end (starting upload to YouTube). My wife thinks it’s OK so it can’t be too bad!

I’ve been thinking about web literacy (or web literacies) on and off since I posted a diagram version of Michelle Levesque’s helpful first efforts.

The post-it note arrangement above is the result of a burst of creativity following a migraine earlier. The structure was prompted by some things mentioned by Helen Beetham at a couple of JISC events earlier this week.

I’d love some feedback!

100 people have now bought in to my e-book on digital literacies!

The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies

Wow.

100 people. One hundred people. Every one of them has parted with money on the promise that by the end of the year I’ll deliver an e-book to them about digital literacies.

They’ve bought in to v0.1 which consists of little more than an explanation of the project. It’s all part of the OpenBeta publishing model explained here.

What are ‘digital literacies’? Why are they important? How can I develop them both personally and in other people? These are some of the questions that ‘The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies by Doug Belshaw seeks to address.

I’m going to be working on finishing v0.2 over Easter weekend. So if you were thinking of buying into it, better be quick before the price doubles!
