Digital literacy –there’s a grease monkey script for that! -Judy O’ConnellCourses and subjects that embed core digital skills, as well as subject-specific use of technology, enable students to gain the skills and confidence they need to use digital technology not only to support their learning but also in the workplace. The learning experiences we offer our students can incorporate simple yet powerful strategies and techniques to enhance how we work, play and learn in online and digital environments. You know this, and you enjoy using images as part of these experiences, including in your assessment tasks. But ‘working’ with images as visual representations of ideas requires that educators understand image sharing, image attribution, creative commons, and FlickrCC. Perhaps you or your students are creating slide-decks, writing blog posts, or engaging in other forms of story-telling narratives. This takes time –that is until you discover my favourite Grease monkey script for Firefox. You’ll never look back!
