Welcome!

This wiki accompanies Doug Belshaw's The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies. It provides a place for educators to collaborate on building a learning and research environment based on the book. The model for this is the wiki accompanying Yochai Benkler's The Wealth of Networks which can be found here.

Get started

There's four main things that you need to do before you get started here:

  • Create an account
  • Fill out your profile page
  • Get stuck in editing the wiki
  • Make use of the discussion pages

If you're familiar with MediaWiki (the wiki software that runs Wikipedia) then you'll know how to jump straight in. If not, then it's easy! There's some basic help below and some detailed help here.

Create an account

This is very straightforward. Click on 'Create account' to the top right-hand corner of your screen and follow the instructions. If you've ever created an account on any other site on the internet, I'm guessing I don't have to explain this any further!

Fill out your profile page

Once you've registered, ad some details to your user page, using mine as an example: http://digitalliteraci.es/wiki/User:Doug

Note: the easiest way to access this page is by clicking your username at the top right-hand corner of the page while logged-in.

Get stuck in editing the wiki

Feel free to add your own review of The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies to the Reviews page, along with your real name and role. You can also create a new page by entering the name for it at the end of the wiki URL. More guidance here.

Make use of the discussion pages

This front page is locked - I hope for obvious reasons. Wikis get a lot of spam, which we can sort out, but it shouldn't show up here on the front page. If you think this page needs additions/changes, please use the 'Discussion' page. This is accessible via a tab at the top of the page, or by going directly to Talk:Main Page

Thanks again! And please do get in touch if you've got any questions.
