About the project

The aim of this project is to produce an open textbook "Digital Literacy (DL) for Open and Networked Learning" based upon two strands of development that are mutually reinforcing: the first is to create materials for a module on Digital Literacy accredited by the two partner HEI for trainee teachers on their PGCE courses, in line with the HEA Professional Standards Frameworks and the Professional Standards for Teachers, involving the (re)use of OERs and associated pedagogical design; and the second is to develop guidance on practice in teaching and learning in the school sector involving digital literacy (including 10 partner schools and PGCE tutors at participating universities). The work is underpinned by a Research Framework and a Project Methodology.


Background information

The project is part of UK Open Educational Resources Programme Phase Three and builds on the previous involvement of the project team with Phase One and Phase Two. This wiki pulls together information about existing resources related to the key strands of the project, that is Open Educational Resourcesdigital literacy and creativity as well as resources for the Open Textbook.


The purpose of the wiki

During the lifetime of the project, this wiki will provide a space for the core team to store project resourcesand documents related to meetingsproject management issues and to offer regular updates on the project as well as a running list of jobs for members of the team. It will also be used to facilitate communication between members of the project team, giving them access to safe space for collaboration (this space is password protected and can only be accessed by invited users). Towards the end of the project, the team will consider releasing a revised and "cleaned-up" version of the wiki as one of project outputs capturing the processes involved in producing digital literacy OERs.


Project presence/dissemination

Throughout project lifetime, we will have a strong web2.0 presence via project blog and other applications including diigoslideshare and Twitter. The team will also be disseminating the early results of the project by participating in conferences, organising events etc. for more information see the dissemination page. I am also in the process of putting together some boilerplate text for the purpose of external communication (including messages to schools etc.). We also want to disseminate the work of the project in our own institutions: we have created a Digital Literacy group in SHU Yammer
