Our Spring meeting of the East Midlands Learning Technologists’ group is due to take place on April Fools Day, 1st April 2015 at the University of Derby, on the subject of…
Developing Digital Literacies
There is a lot of talk about how organisations need to ensure their workforce and students are digitally literate, but what does this mean for us as learning technologists? How can we go about developing people’s skills to use a variety of technologies appropriately for living, working and learning in a digital age? How can we help people to navigate what, for many, is a new or intimidating world? Whilst institutions and organisations like Jisc and Mozilla might develop frameworks and strategies, which support the promotion of digital literacies, how do we practically deliver this? We hope to explore the answer to these questions and others you may have at the University of Derby on 1st April, 12 pm – 4 pm.
