Many thanks Alistair for a refreshing article. I have the challenge of driving my team of 50 tutors to engage with Digital Literacy this year, and this will certainly assist in everyone getting board. The whole service has developed a strategy with defined milestones for the next 3 years. Thanks again

Thanks for the feedback, Imani. There are a wide range of resources we can support you with in terms of both digital literacy and accessibility and inclusion so do get in touch if you want ideas, ammunition or just to showcase something that worked and you think could work for others!

A great article Alistair. I support digital literacy, It is the best way to utilize the tech we have and it can be used to provide literacy to tens of thousand of people who cant get it. There are tons of ways in which you can use technology for literacy. But that said it can be implemented only if we accept the need of technology and then we start accessing it.

Hi Henry, another exciting development that supports digital literacy is the move towards Open Access, something Jisc has actively supported for several years. The combination of low cost digital tools and free/open content (eg www.core.account. uk) offers exciting opportunities for teaching and learning.
