Exploring Digital Literacy

Exploring Digital Literacy AppLC

Digital Literacy Graphic

A new Appalachian Learning Community (AppLC) has been established to explore digital literacy, which is emerging as a strategic direction and core competency at many universities.

Increasingly, as faculty and students are immersed in digital content, tools, and products, they require more sophisticated understandings and skills to navigate, evaluate, and participate in digital and civic spaces. A number of frameworks and approaches related to digital literacy have emerged that could inform the teaching, research, and learning efforts at our university. Our learning community will build individual and collective knowledge of those who are ready to learn and develop means to advance digital literacy at Appalachian State University.
