About the pathway modules

The key objective of this Pathway is to assist educators in supporting learners’ digital literacy development to promote digital inclusion and digital equity. This includes critical and creative thinking skills and the development of digital skills, i.e., the ability to navigate in digital environments and use digital tools.

Topics covered

The Digital Literacy Educator Pathway currently features two modules:

  • Module 1 looks at what digital literacy is, presents a range of digital literacy frameworks, and explores the interplay of digital literacy and remixing.
  • Module 2 has a wealth of resources, strategies, icebreakers, and activities for teaching digital literacy.

How to register

To access the modules, visit the Pathways Awarua website and sign up as an Educator. Once registered and logged in, select the “Educator Pathways” tile to get to Digital Literacy Pathway and other educator pathways offered by Ako Aotearoa.
