Title:Digital literacy initiatives in Canada: Exploring successes from multiple perspectives
Author(s):Julien, Heidi; Detlor, Brian
Subject(s):Digital literacy
Public libraries
Abstract:This poster presents initial results of a study exploring digital literacy training provided by public libraries and other community organizations in Canada. The goal of the study is to identify best practices for these kinds of training opportunities, and to prepare a toolkit that public libraries and community organizations can use to evaluate these initiatives. In addition, the study seeks to contribute to theoretical understanding of digital literacy and digital literacy instruction. The study, being undertaken by scholars across multiple disciplines, and supported by partners in the public library sector and other community organizations, will build knowledge and understanding from interdisciplinary and inter-institutional perspectives. Methods include case studies in public libraries and other community organizations, as well as a national survey of public libraries. The poster presents initial results of case studies of digital training initiatives offered by public libraries and other community organizations in one medium-sized and in one large Canadian city.
