Assessing Digital and Media Literacy Learning and Higher Order Thinking Skills
Date Friday, Nov 29 Time – Room Bishop
Even though digital and media literacy education seems to be thriving, media-literacy assessment remains an issue of concern. We often expect skills such as creativity, imagination, and critical thinking from our learners, but both instructors and learners are not always sure what they mean in practice. This Knowledge Factory provides you with hands-on and evidence-based recommendations to assess digital and media-literacy learning and higher-order thinking skills with your learners in your organisation or educational institution. Of course, there will be space for discussion related to the assessment practices and recommendations you might have implemented yourself as well!
