This book will help students develop a higher-level critical lens in which to navigate the digital realm. We will start by examining participatory culture, online communities, commodification of digital space, content evaluation, remix culture, and effective strategies to aid in digital projects and communication. Chapters 2-7 have been mapped to the ACRL Information Literacy Framework.
We envision a faculty support book to accompany this book, focusing on how to integrate digital literacy concepts into an already existing course. (Key authors: Michelle Schwartz & Don Kinder).
We’re currently looking for a full-text peer reviewer. Chapters are approximately 4000-6000 words and will be released to reviewers on a rolling basis until approx. January 31st. Short descriptions of each chapter are available in the chapter assignment sheet.
Chapter 3 - Understanding Digital Citizenship
Chapter 5 - Won’t Get Fooled Again: Developing Evaluative Literacy Skills
Chapter 4 - Critical Approaches to Digital Literacy
Chapter 7 - Joining the Digital Conversation
Chapter 8 - Tips for Content Creation in the Digital Age (Writing)
Ready for Review:
Chapter 1 - Intro to Digital Literacy
Expected in February (claimed for review):
Chapter 2 - Modes of Digital Communication
Chapter 6 - Value of Information
Reviewers should be familiar with the ACRL Information Literacy Framework and teaching information literacy to 100-200 level students. Please read the Rebus Community Review Guide for more details on the process.
