Digital Literacies

  1. My digital profile revealed a lot about the skills I thought I had, my “digital confidence.” Normally, if anyone had asked me about my digital skills, I would have replied that I am confident when it comes to the different fields that were included in this survey. However, after reading the descriptions, the only section I could choose “confident” for was the one about communicating and collaborating online. The rest I could only say that I was “comfortable” with as the descriptions included skills I was not familiar with.
  2. Digital Literacy, as defined on Wikipedia, refers to “an individual’s ability to find, evaluate, produce and communicate clear information through writing and other forms of communication on various digital platforms.” I find this to be an easy way to comprehend the term, as I was always confused as to what it meant, ever since I registered this class honestly. After completing this exercise, I understand what digital literacy is and the important elements of it. The video shed light on the thin line between literacy and skill. I had never heard the term “digital fluency” before, but now I get the link between literacy and language.
