Developing Digital Literacies with Saudi Arabian HEIs

Developing Digital Literacies with Saudi Arabian HEIs | Digital Literacies information sources | Scoop.it

A delegation from Saudi Arabia have participated in a workshop on the strategic use of digital technology and skills development as part of a series of events planned for their visit to the UK, Germany and Washington D.C.

 

have just come back running a day and half workshop around the Strategic Use of TEL in Higher Education - it was a specific workshop to start off a series of events and workshops for the NCEL International Courses, organised by The International Academy for Educational Consultancy and Professional Development http://www.iaecpd.com/.  The group that I had the pleasure of working with was a group of academics and senior managers from Saudi Arabia.  

 

The prezi I used can be accessed here: http://prezi.com/yjbtwgo5jbfw/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy 

 

The group will be spending around 10 days in the UK and will be exploring a range of activities using a variety of tools, including iPads. Throughout the workshop they identified how important digital literacies were to any kind of innovation.  One of the most interesting activities was a look at the challenges associated with becoming an innovative institution, this sparked some interesting conversations.

It was great fun, and I hope that they enjoy their time in the UK (and come back soon!)

Comprehensive document (book) covering academic digital literacies skills. Nice line about literacy being how you participate online rather than being able to read online.
