Study Proves Why We Need Digital Literacy Education

Study Proves Why We Need Digital Literacy Education | Adult Digital Literacy | Scoop.it

The correlation between laptop use and verbatim note taking is incredibly useful information for it allows educators to address how students use their tools. It certainly does not suggest that laptops are "harm[ful]" or should be restricted. The "pen" is not "mightier than the keyboard."

Rather, it demonstrates the need for explicit instruction in how to most effectively take notes, either by pen or laptop. In other words, it points to the need for digital literacy instruction. Indeed, because text can be input into laptops faster than by hand, these tools actually provide a potential benefit to note-takers: the ability to take more notes.

Elizabeth Dalton's insight:

Interesting research - but we need to be careful about the conclusions that are drawn from it.  Most important, in my view, is the point that while we do need to learn how to operate digital tools, we cannot assume that we should stop there - we also need to learn how and where they fit to support or facilitate learning.  This article shows that information literacy is just as important as digital literacy - librarians have ALWAYS known this - and we need to pay attention to this point!

Web Accessibility: Is Your Content Ready for Everyone?

Web Accessibility: Is Your Content Ready for Everyone? | Adult Digital Literacy | Scoop.it
Amy Ruell has been blind since birth, but software programs called screen readers help her read web content-that is, if websites are created in a way that makes their information accessible and usable for her, which is not always the case. Sometimes, sites that constantly refresh aren't coded right, and every page refresh causes her screen reader to start going through the page all over again. Some sites don't have properly tagged headings or descriptive links to help her find what she needs quickly; others are too cluttered with ads.
Elizabeth Dalton's insight:

This is information that is relevant and important for persons of all ages and needs - and absolutely for professionals, as well.  Accessibility is EVERYONE's business - and there is much to learn.

Celebrate 25 years of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

As part of our celebration of the ADA's 25th Anniversary, this month's Justice Blog spotlights recent successes in access to employment and access to the courts. In the employment arena, the Department reached settlements with nine public employers to require them to remove illegal questions asking applicants about their disabilities from their job applications. In addition, several agreements required employers to ensure that their online job application websites are accessible in compliance with WCAG 2.0 AA. 

The Blog also spotlights the success brought about by our settlement with the Orange County, Florida Clerk of Courts to ensure that, upon request, the Court provides electronic court documents in a format that is accessible to individuals with disabilities, such as attorney Thomas Ross, who is blind. Almost one year into the settlement agreement, the Clerk of Courts has made significant improvements to its website and has also completed training on the ADA and online accessibility requirements. This will help to ensure that Mr. Ross and other individuals who are blind can access the court documents they need to practice their professions or participate in cases in which they are a party. 

For more information on the Americans with Disabilities Act visit www.ADA.gov or call the toll-free ADA Information Line at (800) 514-0301 or (800) 514-0383 (TTY).

One of the most significant pieces of legislation in the US to ensure protection of accessibility rights for persons with disabilities.  Let's continue the progress!
