The Uses of Digital Literacy
Hartley, John (2009) The Uses of Digital Literacy. Creative Economy + Innovation Culture. University of Queensland Press, Australia.
Online social networks, user-created content and participatory media are often still ignored by professionals, denounced in the press and banned in schools. but the potential of digital literacy should not be underestimated.
Hartley reassesses the historical and global context, commercial and cultural dynamics and the potential of popular productivity through analysis of the use of digital media in various domains, including creative industries, digital storytelling, YouTube, journalism and mediated fashion.
