There is a vast array of digital tools to choose from. It is likely that you are aware and use a few of them but there are bound to be many that you have never heard of or used. Some technologies are designed specifically with education in mind. Others have a different purpose but can still be really useful to know about and can support your study in different ways.
If you are interested in improving your digital skills or sharing your skills with students and staff members in your department, why not become a Technology Champion? Please contact Liz Dunne, Head of Student Engagement and Skills, for more information.
The digital is beginning to permeate our academic life, as print did in the Renaissance ...digital literacy is about being aware of the vast array of resources available and being able to choose the most useful tool.
