Digital Literacy:

  • The ability to use digital technology, communication tools or networks to locate, evaluate, use and create information. 1
  • The ability to understand and use information in multiple formats from a wide range of sources when it is presented via computers. 2
  • A person’s ability to perform tasks effectively in a digital environment… Literacy includes the ability to read and interpret media, to reproduce data and images through digital manipulation, and to evaluate and apply new knowledge gained from digital environments. 
These three Bullet points are taken from the website: http://www.library.illinois.edu/diglit/definition.html Check it out for some more information!
So as the previous definitions went on about, Digital Literacy really means the ability to use the internet to it’s fullest. That’s really what it means when it’s all boiled down..
After looking around at some of the music websites ( Tunecore, Reverbnation, CDBaby, Topspin, Nimbit, Sonicbids, Bandcamp), I found that Topspin was my favorite.
My favorite thing about it is, at first it has this Facebook feel to it, but then once you click on an artist’s page, it’s like it has a Myspace feel where you can customize everything, and make things personal. I like that over the BandCamp. That one felt a little boring and kind of repetitive..
But that’s all I have for you today folks!
Post more later!
Have a great rest of your day!
