|20 February – 5 March
During this topic we will together explore important literacies to survive and thrive in the digital age, as well as your experiences of digital consumption, communication, collaboration and creation, as learners and educators. Accessing, filtering, critically evaluating information in vast networks, repositories and digital libraries as well as connecting with individuals and groups via social networks and adapting it for learning and teaching is a complex process. It requires specific skills, attitudes and behaviors which become increasingly more important for individuals and society.
We will also discuss online participation and your digital footprints. You will be encouraged to reflect on your digital presence and identity as well as your experience of digital consumption, communication, collaboration and creation.
As a starting point for your blog you will reflect on and discuss your own digital presence and identity and your experiences, concerns and challenges.
Activities for all learners

By the end of the topic, take part of what the PBL group shares from their inquiries and comment!
