The world we live in is always changing. In 2022, we read academic articles on phones, use emojis to communicate with coworkers, and might even order groceries from robot assistants. The ability to interact meaningfully with a variety of software, devices, and apps—a skill often called technological literacy—has become vital in all aspects of our lives.
Everyone at Clark is at different points in their tech literacy journey, and this journey will continue beyond your time on campus. Just as technology itself is always evolving, so too is our relationship to it. Here are a few ways you can enhance your technological literacy:
- Watch this TEDxTalk video on why technological literacy is so important
- Activate your LinkedIn Learning account – a free and valuable resource for all Clark community members – to explore thousands of videos and resources
- Check out this short LinkedIn Learning playlist to learn more about OneDrive, Clark’s cloud storage system
These resources will take you less than 20 minutes and may make a big difference in how efficient and comfortable you are working, teaching and studying at Clark. Look for more future resources in this reoccurring column.
