EDDL 5101 Week 2 Activity 4: What Do You Think About Digital Literacy?

What Do You Think About Digital Literacy?

Activity: Students have been working on networking and creating their ‘brand’. In preparation for an up and coming panel interview with a member of the community, students will design their own business card to present at the interview.

How does it develop digital literacy?

In order for students to ‘thrive’ in a digital culture, students will be taught how to use select tools that will best enable them to market themselves in a positive manner whilst supporting their brand. Students will cover the following:

  1. Research and Information Fluency– students will research and evaluate existing business cards and evaluate their effectiveness including new technologies such as QR codes as well as understanding the different purposes and contexts of digital image editing.
  2. Creativity and Innovation– evaluating the tools to present themselves in a professional manner whilst promoting their brand. Consider how culture is produced through the Internet and social media in particular- looking at ways to make their brand more accessible (links to Linkedin etc).
  3. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making- A time bonded task, students will need to decide what ‘relevant’ information they will include and which tools and design will best represent their brand.
  4. Communication and Collaboration– Peer assessment will help students to evaluate the effectiveness of how their brand is communicated to the audience.
  5. Digital Citizenship– learning to communicate and collaborate safely (no personal emails or cell numbers, links to Gsites that are secure and permission needs to be requested etc).
  6. Tech Operations and Concepts-has reasonable knowledge of available technologies, their strengths and weaknesses, and is able to make informed decisions about whether and how to use technologies
    to pursue personal goals.

  1. I blog often and I genuinely appreciate your content. This great article has really peaked my interest. I am going to take a note of your site and keep checking for new details about once a week. I subscribed to your RSS feed too.

  2. Definitely consider that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing
    to take into accout of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed
    at the same time as other folks consider issues that they plainly do
    not know about. You managed to hit the nail
    upon the top as smartly as defined out the whole thing
    without having side-effects , other folks can take a signal.
    Will likely be again to get more. Thanks

  3. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something
    that I think I would never understand. It seems too
    complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!

  4. Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring
    on other blogs? I have a blog centered on the same subjects
    you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my
    viewers would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e-mail.

  5. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it
    appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my
    authorization. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being
    ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

  6. I am really impressed with your writing talents as smartly as with
    the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you
    modify it yourself? Anyway stay up the excellent high quality writing, it’s rare
    to peer a nice blog like this one today..

  7. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a
    blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me
    tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that too few folks are speaking intelligently
    about. I am very happy that I came across this during my search for something regarding this.

  8. This design is incredible! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  9. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
    issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either
    authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without
    my authorization. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

  10. I love your blog.. very nice colors & theme.

    Did you design this website yourself or did you hire someone to do it for you?
    Plz reply as I’m looking to design my own blog and
    would like to know where u got this from. cheers

  11. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your site and in depth
    information you present. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed material.
