The following pages represent my rich reflections on chapters 6-9 of Doug Belshaw’s The Essential Elements of Digital Literacies. On the whole, I very much enjoyed Belshaw’s argument and the questions it encourages. Further, its open-ended nature allowed for both academic and contextual interpretation and analysis. Although I attempted to maintain cohesion in my analysis across the chapters, I’m not sure I’m always successful.

Chapter 6, Curiosity Created the LOLCat

Chapter 7, Remix: The Heart of Digital Literacies

Chapter 8, Coding and the Web

Chapter 9, Conclusion
