- 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.
- 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.
