Digital Disruption

http://www.digidisruption.co.uk/

Somehow I managed to find myself representing the library at a workshop hosted by Bold Creative at a rather impressive Shoreditch venue today. Rubbing shoulders with representatives from Wikimedia, Demos, Vodafone and others, the objective was planning the expansion the teaching of digital judgement, a blend of the digital literacy skills that librarians have been specialising in for some time now. Hopefully we’ll continue to be involved in this project that has it’s origins in Tower Hamlets.

Many thanks to everyone present. Official tweets can be followed #ddsummit

Meanwhile the Digital Disruption site is an excellent teaching tool. We at the Tower Hamlets Schools Library Services will also continue to expand our information literacy workshops both as in-school sessions for pupils and INSET aimed at teachers and tutors.
