Award Winning OER – 23 Things for Digital Knowledge

Gold text on black background, reads: dLA Credo Digital Information Literacy Award 201723 Things for Digital Knowledge has been awarded the Credo Digital Literacy Award for LILAC 17. The Credo Digital Award for Information Literacy rewards an innovative/high impact digital resource developed by a UK-based individual or group.

The judges were Katharine Reedy (Learning & Teaching Development Manager, Open University) and Josie Fraser (Social and Educational Technologist).
Katharine explained: “we both agreed this is a superb resource which builds digital literacy through a well-designed combination of information, discovery and social interaction. It is very flexible in how it can be used, with bitesize chunks of learning, and accreditation through badging for those who wish to work through the whole course. It therefore appeals to a wide range of learners.”
