Q: What is information literacy?
A: That is where I found my definition at, however I shall paraphrase in my own words. Information literacy is having the knowledge to figure out problems, how to successfully navigate online and figure out how to solve them, using digital means/technology.
Q: What is e-literacy?
A: The ability to use digital means to understand digital messages, and to efficiently prove this when needed.
Q: What is media literacy?
A: The ability to find, use and evaluate and create media.
Q: What is new literacies?
A: While I couldn’t find a reliable source for this particular question, I’m going to surmise that it is the digital literacies that are arising out of the use of technology.
I didn’t realise that “E-literacy has been defined in a variety of ways but it generally relates to the skill set required to make efficient use of all of the materials, tools, and resources that are available online.”
For me what matters most that the e-literacy is the way you process and provide an information through digital and electronic perspective.
What is ICT Literacy?
I think that “information and communication technology, so many times. Perhaps, your basic understanding is that ICT is the term used for covering the entire gamut of technology that was brought by recent discoveries in the field of engineering and science, all aimed to improve and make our lives easier.” Tinio (2003)
I didn’t realise that “Information and communication technologies include computers, laptops, digital cameras, video cameras, digital microscopes, scanners, cell phones, electronic games, digital audio devices, global positioning systems, electronic whiteboards, the Internet, et cetera. ICTs in the classroom will continue to evolve as new technologies emerge over time.”
For me the important thing about ICT Literacry is the continous knowledge and awareness of digital device for software and hardware.
#lida 102 I think that .Digital literacy is about being able to find, sort, evaluate, manage and create information in digital forms.
This means being able to:
find sources of information by using search engines and other downloading platforms effectively
sort through information in order to identify the most relevant for the intended purpose
evaluate the value of the information by considering its reliability, credibility and authority
manage the information by understanding how to use it appropriately, eg understanding how to cite a source and to download files in a legal and safe way, and use digital sites safely and wisely
create original content without plagiarising the work of others.
I didn’t realize that .There was such a thing as “digital literacy.” Well, not in the sense that there’s a true definition for it. Digital literacy can be defined as the ability to use different technology tools for various reasons. It includes finding and evaluating information, connecting and collaborating with others, and sharing content.
For me, the most important thing about literacies for the 21st century . Creativity is as important now in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status. Imagination is the source of every form of human achievement.
