Welcome to this EdTech course on Digital Literacies for teaching and learning
Digital literacy skills have risen to the top of many agendas in post-pandemic teaching and learning settings. But exactly what are digital literacy skills and why do students need them? How is digital literacy different to simply knowing how to use tech resources?
This course will help you navigate the wide ranging topic of ‘digital literacy skills’ and make sense of how this translates to your context. We will consider what you or teachers in your school/college are already doing to promote digital literacy skills and how this can be developed further. How can the strands of digital literacy skills be promoted authentically and effectively embedded in teaching and learning? You will also consider what support and resources you need to move students’ digital literacy forward in your context. This course is suitable for teachers, learning coaches, advanced practitioners and anyone supporting blended and digital learning.
This course is presented by Louise McIntyre, Learning Technology Team Leader at The Manchester College.
