Putting Digital and Information Literacies into Practice - The Digidol Project | NetworkED: Technology in Education

Putting Digital and Information Literacies into Practice - The Digidol Project | NetworkED: Technology in Education | Information Professions | Scoop.it

In combination with academic literacies, digital and information literacies represent a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills that ideally should be developed as an integral part of subject specific learning. The challenge at an institutional level is helping academic staff and students achieve this in a manner that is fully integrated and sustainable.

 

As part of the JISC funded Digidol Project (http://digidol.cardiff.ac.uk) at Cardiff University work is being done to create a common framework and methodology to enable professional services staff, academic staff and students to arrive at a shared understanding of what literacies are required and how they can best be realised through meaningful learning and teaching practices.

Evolving in Common: Creating Mutually Supportive Relationships Between Libraries and the Digital Humanities | Digital Scholarship Today | Information Professions | Scoop.it
(2013). Evolving in Common: Creating Mutually Supportive Relationships Between Libraries and the Digital Humanities. Journal of Library Administration: Vol. 53, Digital Humanities in Libraries: New Models for Scholarly Engagement, pp.

 

"The authors lay out practical ways for libraries to involve themselves in this evolving area, especially focused on current strengths of many libraries including commitments to resource accessibility and project development. Finally, this article proposes that the role of the research librarian is evolving in order to effectively integrate the library as a partner in the scholarship of digital humanities."

“@jjvandyk: transformation of school libraries to a learning commons environment http://t.co/nQEwj9yT @MyBCLibrary” #UU_LIM

 

"...school libraries are transforming to stay relevant in this global information economy and support the growing and changing needs of the learners. In addition to traditional roles of information literacy and providing the best resources to support curriculum, teacher-librarians support digital literacy and innovative learning practices – inquiry-based, project-based – for students and teachers. They actively connect learning to technology and resources, and facilitate knowledge creation for the school community. They are on a continuing quest to find new ways of supporting students in their learning. The role is multi-faceted, challenging, ever-evolving, and ultimately highly rewarding because the impact can be so significant."
