Digital Literacy Brainstorm

How would you know if you were digitally literate?

In our exploration seminar at Queens University of Charlotte, our central question surrounds digital literacies. For our fourth weekly inquiry, students and invited guests will investigate the markers of digital literacy in a group brainstorm.

We’ll start with the white paper Digital and Media Literacy: A Plan of Action written by Renee Hobbs. In it, she suggests that digital and media literacy is a five-part effort including the abilities to access, analyze, create, reflect, and act. Using these five skills as a framework, we will brainstorm the types of markers that might be measured in each area.

The brainstorm will take place in Dana 202 on the Queens University of Charlotte campus from 1:45-2:45 pm on Monday February 13, 2012. Students, faculty, staff and community members are welcome to participate.
