Digital Literacy Unpacked

Edited by Katharine Reedy and Jo Parker

This book brings together a wide range of diverse perspectives on digital and information literacy that provide a comprehensive blend of theory and practice for library and information professionals.

Digital Literacy Unpacked demonstrates the importance of digital literacy in all areas of life, the centrality of critical thinking (a key element of both digital and information literacy), and the essential role of library and information professionals in leading digital literacy developments. It highlights the partnerships needed to deliver excellence and presents case studies from a range of practitioners world-wide.

Includes coverage of:

  • approaches to digital literacy, including a discussion of terminology, institutional approaches, and existing frameworks
  • an overview of digital literacy in HE and examples of good practice
  • openness and digital literacy with a discussion of OERs and MOOCs
  • the myth of digital natives
  • developing digital capabilities for staff
  • professional development for librarians
  • digital inclusion and lifelong employability in a digital world.

The book will be useful reading for library and information professionals across the sector (FE, HE, schools, business/corporate, special, public), institutional leaders and managers, and LIS students. It will also be useful reading for educational technologists, learning and teaching professionals, and anyone with an interest in developing digital and information literacy capabilities in their students, teachers and customers.
