People, I came across this interesting text by Maha Bali, an associate professor at the American University in Cairo, Egypit, where she very clearly explains the differences between digital skills and digital literacies. What called my attention was that, by explaining both things, she also reinforces the role of a teacher in this day and age. According to Bali “teaching digital skills would include showing students how to download images from the Internet and insert them into PowerPoint slides or webpages. Digital literacy would focus on helping students choose appropriate images, recognize copyright licensing, and cite or get permissions, in addition to reminding students to use alternative text for images to support those with visual disabilities“.
