  • I like this approach to information/digital literacy - afficacy OK, this is a summary of what informs our information literacy approach in #digipo. I tried to balance out being provocative with showing how our approach flows from traditional concerns. https://t.co/tZ3Dnucgw4 Online digital information literacy “Learn to value efficacy over accuracy”. ... this makes so much sense https://t.co/FeXRJBUkO7

  • We can see it all unfold in a fascinating short history of the application of new technologies in higher education by Martin Weller in a recent article for EDUCAUSE, the community platform for IT leaders and professionals. Weller also runs a popular blog in which he expands on developments in IT and their meaning. In his history, Weller selects a different educational technology, theory, or concept for each of the years from 1998 through 2018 with the aim of examining “what has changed, what remains the same, and what general patterns can be discerned from this history”. Twenty years ago he says, the web – accessed through dial-up modems – “had reached a level of mainstream awareness”. There was “a general sense of puzzlement about what it would mean” with some academics considering it all to be a fad.
