Book Review: Engaged Learners and Digital Citizens: Critical Outcomes for Teaching and Learning

Ina Ghita

Abstract


The ways in which we teach and learn, as well as our access to knowledge, have changed in the last half-century, making digital tools not only ubiquitous, but necessary in post-secondary education. In his volume, Engaged Learners and Digital Citizens: Critical Outcomes for Teaching and Learning, Brad Garner identifies digital literacy as a necessity and proposes practical ways in which post-secondary educators can support their students into learning how to use digital tools in an efficient and responsible way.
