What do we mean by digital literacy? How does it affect our teaching and our students? This interactive workshop will discuss some of the major theories and thoughts about "literacy" in the age of computers and the internet. We’ll look at how these forces are changing the way our students think and consider pedagogical practices to support LCC students’ digital literacy practices.
