The more I teach infolit courses, the more I realize I have to teach little tricks of computer use, like ctl-F for find, or where the address bar is, or that you don’t have to go to Google, you can just type in the web address. When students use their own laptops or tablets, we have to spend class time getting them on wireless, and then there’s the general troubleshooting that comes up in any technology heavy class.
I hoe this will turn into a skill-sharing/problem solving session.
- What are some of your best Media, Digital, Computer and Information literacy teaching hacks?
- How do you handle students who are computer illiterate?
- BYOD/smartphone/tablet teaching
I’m coming at this from an academic library perspective, but I’d love to hear what public librarians are doing with this, too.
