Passport

We created a digital literacy passport (see top right image) as a fun way of recording attendance and participation in sessions related to one or more of the digital literacy skills or competencies that make up ARU's Digital Literacy Framework. The Framework defines five different digital literacies, and each of their three proficiency levels, needed by ARU staff and students to thrive in an evolving digital environment. We created badges that match the five digital literacies (see below).
