Presenter(s): Stacey Roberts, Danny Nicholson
In this episode we talk to Danny Nicholson, ICT Consultant and author of our iPLS Professional Development Module, iPLS Computing, about digital literacy and why it is now more important than ever to be digitally literate. We discuss what digital literacy is, why it is more relevant today, why it is important not only for students to be digitally literate but also why we as teachers need to be digitally relevant.
Danny provides some fantastic resources and advice on what you can do to develop both your digital literacy skills and your students' skills so that they are ready for education in the digital world and an ever-increasing digital workplace. We also discuss the importance of your digital footprint and what you can do to ensure you and your students are using the internet and technology in a safe manner.
