Brian Scarbeau Insights from a seasoned Computer Science Trainer
Alfred Thompson wrote in his blog about a Digital Literacy Curriculum program that Microsoft had on their site. I checked out the site and it covered 5 areas of study: Computer Basics The Internet and World Wide Web Productivity Programs Computer Security and Privacy Digital Lifestyles Each unit has an assessment test and then at the end there is a test that you can take and then print out a certificate when you finish. This semester, I'm requiring all my students to take this certificate exam. As part of my students assignment, they are required to review each unit of study at home and then take the assessment test for each unit. I've given due dates for this and then on Monday, February 19th they will all take the exam on campus. All students not just computer science students should be digital literate. At some point in time, colleges will have some type of digital literacy requirement for students. This is important, don't you think?
