EXPLORING DIGITAL LITERACY AND SAFETY IN OUR DIGITAL WORLD

Welcome to the educator’s podcast where we discuss all things teaching to help you be the best teacher you can be in our evolving 21st century digital world.


ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY

I would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which I create this podcast on, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. I would also like to pay my respects to their Elder’s, past, present and emerging, and I would like to extend this respect to all Indigenous Australians.

EPISODE 1

In this episode, we will unpack digital literacy and the considerations needed to be taken to generate equitable learning experiences amongst primary-aged students.

EPISODE 2

In this episode, we will analyse the overreliance on digital technologies and how we can shift this focus from seeming negative to being a positive. We will discuss ways in which we can alter the way we view technology to better improve our learning experiences and overall use of technology and presence in the digital world.

EPISODE 3

In this episode, we will take a look into the digital divide that is occurring amongst Australian communities.

Podcast will be released November 14th 2023.
