Abstract

Digital literacy is a powerful subject, which supports inclusivity, social mobility and digital citizenship globally. This book brings together thought-leaders and experts in the field, providing a blend of research and practice across sectors, and provides a valuable and timely insight into digital literacy and learning.

Digital Literacy Unpacked not only offers a snapshot of innovative approaches to digital literacy, but also intends to provoke discussion, encourage collaboration and inspire – whatever the role or context. The editors open up the whole area of digital literacy in all its kaleidoscopic richness, and provide diverse perspectives, content and ideas to inform thinking and practice.

The cross-sectoral and global significance of digital literacy is a key theme of the book. Digital literacy is relevant to higher education, further education, schools, children, and the workplace – but crucially at its heart it is a citizenship and inclusion issue, necessary for the full participation and achievement of all in society.

Content covered includes:

a discussion of terminology, institutional approaches, and existing frameworks;
digital literacy in learning and teaching;
copyright literacy;
teaching the use of digital tools and curriculum design;
critical approaches to literacy;
combatting social exclusion using digital skills.
