Connect and Communicate Presents: You’re Wrong About: Student Digital Literacy

Carmen Cole, Emily Mross, and Andrea Pritt

We may (incorrectly) assume that because most of our students were “born digital,” and have never known a time without computers in their classrooms, that they are innately digitally literate. However, interactions with students at all levels in a variety of settings have demonstrated that some students struggle with or are unaware of basic digital literacy concepts and skills. In this session, librarians will discuss how they have incorporated digital literacy objectives into their instruction. Participants may share their experiences with this challenge and how they have or would like to address it within their discipline’s curriculum.

Carmen Cole is the Information Sciences and Business Liaison Librarian at Penn State University Libraries, University Park. Emily Mross is the Business Librarian and Outreach Coordinator at Penn State University Libraries, Harrisburg. Andrea Pritt is the STEM Librarian and Data and Collections Coordinator at Penn State University Libraries, Harrisburg.

We will mute participants on entry into the Zoom room. Session will be recorded and available on YouTube after the session. We will enable Zoom’s Live Transcription feature during the session.

If you would like to present with C&CS, please contact the C&CS team.

This project is made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Josh Shapiro, Governor.

Support is also provided by the College and Research Division of the Pennsylvania Library Association.
