Being digitally literate means being able to search and navigate, think critically and analyse, create and communicate information using a variety of digital media.
Watch the following video to discover how digital literacy helps us all to live, learn, teach and connect in a global digital world.
For a break down of some key tasks associated with digital literacy, check out the digital literacy quick guide (PDF, 89.4 KB).
A digital literacy framework (PDF, 127 KB) has been developed by Deakin University Library to assist course teams and unit chairs in developing course and unit learning outcomes for digital literacy.
This framework breaks down the skills and proficiency associated with digital literacy into the three key aspects of find, use and disseminate.
Discuss the digital literacy framework with your Liaison Librarian.
Here are some examples of innovative ways digital literacy is being evidenced in learning activities and assessment tasks for different units.
This example involves students finding and evaluating information resources for their assignment topic, and presenting it in an annotated bibliography.
Join and contribute to our Digital literacy Community of Practice on Yammer. You can share ideas, opinions, resources and experiences of working with digital literacy in learning, teaching and assessment at Deakin University.
