Effective digital skills are essential for all teachers and tutors in the Further Education (FE) and Skills Sector. This text brings together important theory and research around digital literacy and outlines what this means for teaching in the sector. It is a practical guide that:
- introduces different types of web-based technologies and explores how they can be used in teaching
- provides guidance on the digital skills teachers and tutors need and how they can be developed
- examines issues of digital safety, security and responsibility and how online learning communities can be accessed
- applies critical thinking, creativity and responsibility to the processes of using digital technologies inside and outside of the classroom
Providing a comprehensive framework, underpinned by the standards through which to develop digital literacy skills, this is an essential resource for those teaching or training to teach in the FE and Skills sector.
A good resource for students on the Foundation Degree programme to explore theory and research in digital literacy. Examples within the book provide clear links to practice to support key assignments on the course, enabling students to critically examine their own teaching methods of technology in the classroom.
This book covers all issues related to the introduction of digital literacy into FE classrooms. Great for PGCE students and existing tutors wishing to add a digital element to their lessons
Very clear and concise. A good resource.
Very useful for teachers to keep up to date with digital literacy enabling the use of ILT in the classroom.
A very well written text that underpins the application of effective use of technology as an enhancement to learning
This was really easy to read and suitable for all practioners in a college environment
recommended to our library
Digital Literacy is essential and will become even more so in the near future, as such this book can provide useful ideas to allow FE and HE teachers to embed digital literacy skills into a wide variety of subject areas.
Very good skills bok for every teacher whether on the FE or HE sector
The book offers a useful insight to the dilemmas of tutors and the use of IT skills they have and that of their students/learners.
This is an excellent book and is interesting and well structured and a mine of information. But in reality it is only the teacher / lecturer who needs it. So this book may be suitable for recommending on a teacher training course, but not on a business studies type course.
