06 SES 05, Media Literacy - Digital Competence
The turn of the century brought with it a dramatic change which originated in the emergence of web 2.0 technologies and its implication on social behavior as well as on changes in the digital literacy terminology. Various researchers offered definitions to digital literacy (DL) (for example see: Gilster, 1997; Bawden, 2001; Lankshear & Knobel, 2008). 21st-century skills are different than 20th-century skills (Dede, 2010), hence, DLs needed by the 21st-century learner. Although there are numerous suggestions as to what the needed DLs are (for example see: Eshet-Alkalai & Amichai-Hamburger, 2004; ETS, 2007; Bates, 2009; Dede, 2010; Dudeney, Hockly & Pegrum, 2013), there are few empirical tools to measure what DL's a learner has or needs (see for example Jung & Latchem, 2012). The current research is aimed to fill the gap between the theory and the practice of DL's. The research is based on previous work by Beaudoin, Kurtz, Jung, Suzuki and Grabowski (2013) who tested and validated a set of performance statements (PS) identifying twenty DLs needed by the learner in the second decade of the 21st century. These PS's will enable teachers to identify the level of competency the learner has in each DL, thus identifying students’ strengths and weaknesses that must be addressed in order to facilitate learning in the current era.
This paper presents the results of an empirical study that enabled the research team to finalize the validation of PS's for an inventory of digital literacy skills required for learning. The purpose of the validation process is to gather empirical evidence regarding the criticality of seven Digital Learning Domains (DLD) and sixty-six performance statements as perceived by students with experience in learning via ICT. The seven DLD's identified: Social Responsibility, Team-based Learning, Information Research and Retrieval, Information Management, Information Validation, Processing and Presentation of Information and Digital Integrity.
