Digital Literacy Toolkit Contents and Downloads

This toolkit contains six cases based on real-life examples chosen to illustrate key concepts involving digital professionalism and social media. Each case includes a set of guiding questions that should help foster discussion about specific points within the case. Source material that the cases are based upon is included for review.

Review and download the cases

Each of the six cases also include:

Case Commentary – This section serves as a high-level assessment of the case that helps identify general discussion points that are pertinent to the case.  These are presented so that faculty with limited social media experience can facilitate a directed group discussion.

Educator Notes – This section directly addresses the case-specific guiding questions.  They serve as a starting point for discussion; more questions can always be added. 

Bottom Line – This section includes the take-home points or learning objectives for the case.

Toolkit Considerations - These suggested guidelines will help both learners and facilitators get the most out of the toolkit.

Bibliography and Summaries – This section includes a curated and annotated reading list that provides further background, context, and commentary for each case.
