What is Digital Literacy and why should you care? J Digital technologies influence how we:

  • collect, manage and evaluate online information
  • build an online identity for personal or career development
  • create and curate content in both written and visual media
  • communicate for networking, collaboration and project management purposes
  • deal with privacy and security issues
  • participate in events remotely and face to face

Please get in touch with Fiona ( @fionajharvey) or Lisa ( @lisaharris) if you have a digital literacy project that you would like to discuss or demonstrate at this event. You can choose any of the following presentation options: Pecha kucha, BYO laptop, demonstration, poster, café session, or other innovative approach of your choice!
