The February meeting of the Information Literacy Journal Club will meet on Tuesday 11 February at 12:00, Paris time (local time). It will be led by Nadine Aboulmagd from the American University in Cairo (AUA).
We will discuss the 8 elements of digital literacies. We will read Chapter 5 of Doug Belshaw’s book “The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies”. (The chapter has provided this chapter for our members, available on AMICAL Connect.) The discussion will focus on the following points:
- The chapter introduces the 8 elements of digital literacies, which of the 8 were most and least clear to you?
- Since there is a clear indication in the book that digital literacies are contextual, what are some of the ways the 8 elements could be applied to or understood in your context?
- Which of the elements of digital literacies are well-realized and which need to be developed at your institution? What about you personally?
- How differently do you think disciplines would resonate with the 8 elements of digital literacies?
