Digital Literacy Unpacked, edited by Katharine Reedy and Jo Parker, brings together thought-leaders and experts in the field of digital literacy, providing a blend of research and practice across sectors.
The book not only offers a snapshot of innovative approaches to digital literacy, but also intends to provoke discussion, encourage collaboration and inspire – whatever the role or context. The editors open up the whole area of digital literacy in all its kaleidoscopic richness, and provide diverse perspectives, content and ideas to inform thinking and practice. The cross-sectoral and global significance of digital literacy is a key theme of the book but crucially at its heart it is a citizenship and inclusion issue, necessary for the full participation and achievement of all in society. Coverage includes a discussion of terminology, institutional approaches, existing frameworks, digital literacy in learning and teaching, copyright literacy, teaching the use of digital tools, critical approaches to literacy and combatting social exclusion using digital skills.
Rosie Jones, Director of Library Services at The Open University said of the book, ‘Its timing is key, given the rate of technological change and advances in our thinking around skills, and it contributes practice, theory and research to a topic that is important on a global scale. Across all sectors, we can’t avoid the digital agenda and this text provides a fabulous insight into digital literacy and learning’.
The book will be useful reading for library and information professionals across the sector, institutional leaders and managers, and LIS students. It will also be useful reading for educational technologists, learning and teaching professionals.
