I’m excited to announce that I’ve decided to start writing another e-book. I want to communicate what I’ve learned during my doctoral studies in a way free from academic constraints. I want to empower educators.
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. Informed by his doctoral thesis and experience as an educator, ‘The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies’ Doug is producing a timely resource for those who are interested in both the theory and the practice of digital literacies!
When are you going to finish this?
It depends on many things, but here’s my proposed timescale:
v0.2 – April 2012
v0.4 – June 2012
v0.6 – August 2012
v0.8 – October 2012
v1.0 – December 2012
I’m erring on the conservative side here. I’d rather under-promise and over-deliver!
In what formats will the book be available?
The OpenBeta version will be available in iPad-friendly (and reasonably Kindle-friendly) PDF format. The finished version will be available in the following forms:
