Welcome to the Learn Camp program! We’re glad you’re here.
The possibilities for uses of social media to create community and collaboration are dazzling, although the array of tools and their applications can seem daunting.
Jane, as usual, hits this digital nail right on the head. (You should go read her book.) And that is exactly the type of thinking behind this program. My goal is to introduce you to some of these tools and get you thinking of ways you can apply them to provide solutions for you and your organization.
Just like most things in life, the more you contribute to this adventure the more you’ll take away. So fasten your seatbelt and let’s get going!
We encourage you to question, comment and share things you discover along the way using the hashtag #learncamp We’ll discuss hashtags more in a few weeks, so for now just know that adding that hashtag to your Twitter, Facebook and other posts you’ll help others find yours and you’ll find them.
Activity 1: How do you define ‘digital literacy’
The basic definition of literacy means to be able to read and write. To be successful in today’s digital world, literacy goes far beyond being able to read and write. What does that look like for you?
Leave a comment below answering this question: “How do you define digital literacy?”
Activity 2: Rate Yourself
Our second activity is a short survey to rate your current familiarity with some of the tools we’ll explore in this program. It takes less than 1 minute and we’ll share the results with everyone next week.
