Libraries play a key role in the digital literacy learning ecology by providing a non-judgmental environment for everyone in a community to learn, play and create. The skills learnt through participation in digital literacy activities support creativity, critical and design thinking, and the development of innovation and entrepreneurialism.
State Library of Queensland’s (SLQ) Regional Partnerships team has been working with public libraries across the state to increase the skills of library staff and the community to experiment with and learn to use new technology; enhance community awareness of libraries’ roles, skills and services; support the development of innovative public programming; and develop new relationships in the community by using new technologies to engage with more diverse community members.
Join SLQ in the discovery of digital literacy tools on Wednesday 20 April, from 5pm to 7pm in the Innovation Lab, The Edge, South Bank. The session will include the sharing of best practice examples from public libraries across the state, as well as an opportunity for participants to be hands-on with a number of digital literacy platforms, such as 3Doodler, Makey Makey, Spark Fun, Raspberry Pi, Leap Motion, Mindwave, Ozobot, mBot and Nao.
