Product Description

According to Phillip Ventimiglia and George Pullman (2016), “Just as traditional literacy and the liberal arts have been the key to independence since the advent of public schooling, digital literacy today is about intellectual freedom.” A focus on embedding digital literacies in HEIs across research, teaching, and learning emphasises a paradigm shift away from redundant notions of digital skills towards privileging literacies in a world where digital citizenship is now essential. In the midst of current debates about net neutrality, fake news, and the digital divide, the role of HEIs in supporting, training and producing active digital citizens who can critically navigate these issues is vital.
