I stumbled into an idle moment and used it to ponder digital literacy. I’ll summarise the Wikipedia link’s summary as the abilities to:
- “Deduce information from visuals”
- Create remixes
- Navigate the non-linearity of the web
- Find info online and be critical about it
- Not be an asshole online
I know my summary is not perfect, but neither is the original. I think mine’s more precise. I mean, “don’t be an asshole”. That’s pretty damn clear, right?
Anyway, I think we should add one more. Admittedly, it’s a high-hanging fruit, but I think it’s increasingly important:
- Find solutions to coding problems even if they are someone else’s script on Stack Overflow that you don’t fully understand.
