The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies

  • Digital literacies are developed progressively rather  than sequentially. 
  • Digital literacies are developed by tapping into your own interests.  
  • Internal motivation is the key to getting people to want to try to develop digital skills for themselves.
  • We live in a world where ideas spread very quickly and can be remixed. 
  • We live in a world where the knowledge skills and ideas we currently have can’t be learned once to be used forever. 
  • We live in a world where digital literacies are constantly in flux. 
  • We need to move beyond mere elegant consumption. 
  • We need to remix stuff because digital literacy practices change over time. 
  • We need to focus on people interests to increase intrinsic motivation. 
  •  I’t a lifelong project that everyone needs to be involved  in. 

Begin by using a progressive framework like the 8 essential elements of  digital literacies
