DIGITAL PROFESSIONAL LITERACY

The digital world moves fast and the introduction of computer technology and software programs can leave anyone running to use a typewriter with an ink ribbon. However, whether we want to acknowledge it or not, digital has made a huge impact to our lives in many ways. Keeping our literacy knowledge updated and relevant to our work as educators, human services workers or volunteers means we become more effective in the assistance, support we provide people. DigiUnite's digital professional literacy modules therefore aim to incorporate digital professional literacy into your work.
