This is a good article in which, as one commenter points out, "the points about the process of learning being just as, or more important than, the finality of it all." Having concluded in his thesis that digital literacy is a ‘convenient hypocrisy’, and that speaking of a plurality of ‘digital literacies’ makes more sense than endless attempts to define ‘one literacy to rule them all’, Doug Belshaw was asked by Mozilla to develop a digital literacy standard that can be used with the badge infrastructure. He has done so, in what was to my view an open and consultative p[rocess, and he has, as another commenter argued, walked a fine line between the lumpers and the splitters.
