Those are the big ones, right? Up until recently, a lot of people would have probably said that was correct. But since it is 2013 and so much of our lives happen online, digital literacy is being added to the list. Not that this should come as any sort of surprise to most of us, since most teachers spend vast amounts of time in classrooms surrounded by technology. Technology that both teachers and students need to be literate in.
The handy infographic below takes a look at digital learning as the ‘fourth literacy’, which I found interesting. Do you think that placing digital learning as a fourth literacy is accurate? Would it not be an inherently integral part of the three prior literacies? Even though the graphic focuses on student and parent interest in coding (and associated inability to do so), I find the question of digital literacy being its own category more interesting.
What do you think:
Is digital learning its own literacy? Or has it just become an integral piece of other literacies?
