Computer literacy as life skills for a web 2.0 world
Abstract This paper presents an innovative computerThis paper presents an innovative computer literacy course that focuses solely on developing skills needed for life in a networked world in which one must protect oneself from identity theft, be careful posting on social networks, and use credit and debit cards wisely. The course emphasizes ethical responsibility and information literacy. Its target audience, first-year, non-computer science majors, learn what they need to know to use technology safely, effectively, efficiently, and ethically. The course is grounded in active learning, such as posting in a class wiki, and critical thinking. It is a radical alternative to a traditional software packages approach. The paper documents the need for this course, The Digital Person, and its blend of content and pedagogy. Data from three years of offering the course provide an assessment of its effectiveness and value to those who have taken it. A review of SIGCSE literature in the last ten years finds no representation of this creative approach. representation of this creative approach.
