Information, Data and Media Literacies

Jisc defines Information, Data and Media Literacy in the following ways:

  • "Information literacy is your ability to find, evaluate, organise and share information, whether you are using it for academic or professional purposes, or as a learner...
  • Media literacy covers all the ways you receive and respond to messages in digital media, including text, graphics, video, animations, audio, and media such as websites, simulations and games...
  • Data literacy is how you handle data as a special form of information..." (Jisc digital capability report: 2019)

It is important for both staff and students to be aware of these different literacies and how they should employ them when using information from online sources and putting their own information online.
