Thanks to John Hamerlinck at Minnesota Campus Compact for sending me a fantastic digital (well web) literacy tool.
It’s a point and click chart of digital literacy tasks that breaks tech skills down into easier prerequisite skills. So you can find out what skills are necessary to have before you attempt to insert a hyperlink into a website. Or conversely, once you learn how to insert a hyperlink, you can find out what some logical next skills to learn might be. It can be used by teacher or learner track progress up a ladder of increasing sophisticated web use.
It starts with web browsing and focuses on becoming a web user and content creator – so it’s not much help in terms of learning to use a spreadsheet, but the content is good and the format is very elegant. It would make a good template for other avenues of digital literacy.
