Digital Media Literacy in the Cloud

In terms of being a literate person, the historical definition of literacy embodies one's ability to read with comprehension and write with meaning, on paper. Since the dawn of the digital world in the 1980's, our definition of literacy has expanded to include all forms of digital media, including: text, hypertext, audio, still images and moving images. In this workshop, we explore literacy practices of comprehension and creation with digital media integrated into web pages across the curriculum.
