From the New Media Consortium:
The New Media Consortium (NMC) has released Digital Literacy in Higher Education, Part II: An NMC Horizon Project Strategic Brief, a follow-up to its 2016 strategic brief on digital literacy. Commissioned by Adobe, this independent research builds upon the established baseline definitions of digital literacy from the 2016 brief, examining digital literacy through a global and discipline-specific lens to reveal new contexts that are shaping the way learners create, discover, and critically assess digital content.
While the first NMC strategic brief simplified definitions and made the complex topic accessible, this subsequent project was launched because the constantly evolving nature of digital literacy is reflected in a diversity of frameworks with varied outcomes both globally and across disciplines.
