Bryan Alexander shares about digital literacy – then and now – on episode 144 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.
Quotes from the episode
Most of us were not trained in participatory media, and we haven’t really integrated that into our teaching.
A key part of digital literacy in the social age is that it is productive. We make stuff.
Technical skills are an unavoidable part of digital literacy.
The way we’ve constructed the mobile experience is often apart from the web.
