My definition for digital literacies (Belshaw 2012) for teaching include seven elements: media literacy, information literacy, digital scholarship, learning skills, ICT literacy, career and identity management, and communications and collaboration (Infokit guide produced by Jisc in the UK). Media literacy involves all forms of communications (E-Mails, Twitter, Blogs, etc.) in a range of media, whereas information literacy deals with finding, interpreting, evaluating, managing, and sharing information.  The digital scholarship is the emerging academic and professional practices. Learning skills have to expand in technological environments, while ICT Literacy is used to adopt digital device applications and services.  Finally, career and identity management deals with managing reputation and online identity, whereas communications and collaboration is the participation in digital networks for learning and research. All in all, digital literacies include cognitive, constructive, communicative, civic, critical, confident, creative and cultural entities.
