Plane flying over UAL at High HolbornJo Morrison @ CSM explores what digital literacy means within a dynamic arts and design educational environment and some of her thoughts are captured in a recent blog posting on the ‘Digital Present’ Blog.

As Jo mentions in her posting, colleagues at UAL are putting together a focus group to explore and understand these complex issues in much more detail and the rationale and methodology behind this is explored by Chris Follows in his recent posting about new developments at the DIAL Project.
