Developing your Students' Digital Literacy Skills in a Digitally Disrupted World

In a world which is being continuously disrupted by technologies such as augmented reality, artificial intelligence and automation, the need for good digital literacy skills has never been greater.  While many Australians use the internet and social media, around half of all adult Australians are still functioning with low level digital literacy skills. This means these people are at danger of having the private information easily compromised or being cyber-hacked in some way. The adult education system offers these people the opportunity to increase their digital literacy so they can work and live effectively in a digitally disrupted world.

Join this webinar to learn how to incorporate digital literacy development strategies into your training and assessment program to help improve your students’ digital literacy skills.
