Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What's the Difference? | DMLcentral

Digital Literacies and Web Literacies: What's the Difference? | DMLcentral | Languages, Education & Technology | Scoop.it

Digital literaces and web literacies - are they distinct from one another, or does one live within the other? This post looks at eight "essential elements of Digital Literaries: 1. Cultural; 2. Cognitive; 3. Constructive; 4. Communicative; 5. Confident; 6. Creative; 7. Critical and 8. Civic." After a brief discussion the concept of Web Literacies are addressed, with five elements being recognized: Exploring, Authoring, Connecting, Building and Protecting. 

The conclusion is that Web Literacies are a component of Digital Literacies. For additional information you may want to check out a video, Mozilla Web Literacies (and their relation to digital literacies):

More than Words Can Say: Infographics

Good learning experiences ask students to investigate and make sense of the world. While there are many ways to do this, K–12 curriculum has traditionally skewed toward reading and writing to interpret and express students’ sensemaking. But there is another way. Infographics represent data and ideas visually, in pictures, engaging more parts o the brain to look at a problem from more than one angle.

New Media Literacies

New Media Literacies | Languages, Education & Technology | Scoop.it

Our Space is a set of curricular materials designed to encourage high school students to reflect on the ethical dimensions of their participation in new media environments. Through role-playing activities and reflective exercises, students are asked to consider the ethical responsibilities of other people, and whether and how they behave ethically themselves online. These issues are raised in relation to five core themes that are highly relevant online: identity, privacy, authorship and ownership, credibility, and participation.
