Digital literacy has become an important topic in both academic and non-academic settings. What is digital literacy? Why is it important to have digital literacy? What are challenges to achieving digital literacy? What are some tools we can use to evaluate the credibility of online articles or websites we use? In this unit, we have been exploring these questions by reading, writing, and discussing the topic in depth.
We have also learned how to:
Avoid plagiarizing by using quoting, paraphrasing, and summarizing
Incorporate a quote effectively with a quote sandwich
Use noun clauses, direct quotes, indirect quotes (grammar)
Create MLA in-text citations
Prompt: Write an essay (3-4 pages) explaining the importance of digital literacy in this day and age and address 3 challenges to achieving digital literacy based on the readings we did in class and your personal experiences and observations. Then, provide a viable (capable of working successfully) solution for each of the challenges you’ve identified and analyzed. Finally, make a connection to how you can incorporate the various aspects of the CRAAP test to enhance your digital literacy when you evaluate the credibility of an online source. You must use 3 quotes from the articles to support your analysis. Use in-text citations and create a works cited list following MLA guidelines. The essay is worth 15% of your final grade. It must be submitted on Canvas using Turnitin.
To develop your essay, make sure you understand the readings we have covered and choose your source wisely.
Your introduction needs to have an interesting hook to catch the reader’s attention, background information to introduce the essay topic and your sources (articles from this unit), and a clear thesis statement that outlines the topic and provides a purpose for the essay.
Your body paragraphs should begin with a clear topic sentence with a controlling idea that introduces the specific challenge to digital literacy. Integrate quotations from the articles to introduce the challenges to digital literacy you have identified. One way to do this is to first provide context for the challenge, then use a quote as the support for the topic, which should be followed with an in-depth analysis of the challenge and a solution to the challenge using the various aspects of the CRAAP test (think quote sandwich!). Remember to change the questions in the CRAAP test to noun clauses and briefly explain why the questions you are asking in your evaluation are important when evaluating the credibility of the source.
Your conclusion will summarize your findings and determinations and lay out an argument for the importance of digital literacy and overcoming the challenges to achieving digital literacy. Then, conclude with a final “So what?”
