Abstract

This session will cover free and open tools as well as teaching strategies for creating and implementing digital/web literacy and digital media instruction. The session will also be useful for people looking for free and open tools for their own projects, including how to get started and how to learn necessary new skills. Considerations such as terms of use, privacy, accessibility and licensing can be as or more important than functionality. Additionally, adopting open tools can advance conversations about open licensing which, in turn, can promote the application of creative commons and public domain licenses to appropriate works. Knowing about the platform, software, or service and selecting one that fits your needs is not always straightforward. This session aims to demystify the selection and learning process, providing a strategy for adoption and implementation that is used at Humboldt State University for decision making.
