Digital Literacies - Jill Finch's Presentation

 Digital literacy: what, why, in whose interest? – Jill Finch – 15 October 2020

On 15th October 2020, Jill Finch gave a presentation on “Digital literacy: what, where and in whose interest?”  It was an informative insight into her experience of teaching digital literacies in different contexts. Jill explored lessons learned from her work with Sydney City Council garbage collectors and a “train the trainer” program with public libraries. She asked us to consider the current understanding of the broader LLND world and to think about whose interests the push for digital literacy serves. Jill's Presentation PDF
