"...Rather than just thinking of anonymity as a dangerous mechanism that encourages bad online behaviour, we might want to think of it as a form of resistance. At least we should consider how the tethering of our real identities and connections to our online profiles might compromise our data privacy. It is not just a question of what content you want to display to which of your followers – your invisible audiences are the platforms themselves."
An exploration of bilingual community learners’ attitudes around literacy skills and learning using technology by Esther Barrett
The diverse range of attitudes among bilingual community learners using technology reveals a complex picture which may help to inform policy in the fields of minority language promotion and support, understanding the needs of older bilingual learners, and the use of technology in community learning and literacy skills delivery.
The aim of the project is to build confidence and capability in digital information literacy, focussing on Library Services staff, building on emerging good practice. We expect that this will be transformative in many ways; some as yet unrealised, and will be clearer as the project progresses. However it will be a lever for us to extend our information literacy offer, engage more with students and work more closely with other staff in the University.
We would like to compile thoughts and ideas of how we can come together and explore the use and integration of iPads at UAL. We hope to collaborate and research in the broad area of ‘Networked Learning Technologies in Art and Design’ and examine the use of iPads in Art and Design.
The DIAL project at UAL would be interested in creating or contributing to a Digital Literacy MOOC from user generated content and resources developed from its open content communities and DIAL projects on process.arts.

Facilitators: Carole Baume, JISC Critical Friend, to four projects within the Developing Digital Literacies Programme and staff from the four projects
This 80 minute workshop for a maximum of 50 participants will give you the opportunity to explore and adapt some powerful ideas being developed by projects within the JISC Developing Digital Literacies Programme. Project leaders will help you use these ideas to develop ways to boost the digital literacies of students and/or staff in your University or College.
I was recently invited to present at the academic leaders forum 29 June 2012 in Chesnut (by invitation of the deputy Rector via a staff development forum meeting), this was an extremely timely opportunity to catch all the UAL academic leaders in one shot, UALs Rector, deputy Rector and students union President were also present. Before my presentation, I had the great pleasure of hearing the keynote presentation of Ronald Barnett on student engagement and the issues and challenges we all face now and in the future, Ron did a great Job of provoking thought and reflection and his ‘thinking aloud’ style presentation provided an interesting overview of a student’s perspective although not addressing the digital perspective as such. As Ron talked I noted down key words/themes relating to student engagement which I thought could be flipped and easily identified as also being related to ‘staff & student engagement’ in terms of the DL challenges DIAL has identified to date...
