Monday Video: Digital Skills + Community = Digital Literacies

 Published by Nancy White

Following my recent rants on skills ((Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4), comes this pertinent video of Howard Rheingold at Reboot Britain. (Hat tip Will Richardson http://twitter.com/willrich45) Howard asks us to go beyond skills – which are embedded in the individual – to literacies which are embedded in communities and networks, particularly digital literacies tied to social media. The five he talks about in this video include: 1. Attention 2. Participation 3. Cooperation 4. Critical Consumption (Crap Detection) 5. Network Awareness
