Every year I like to take a glance at the learning resources available free or at a low-cost.
It’s easier than ever to learn how to do something. In the first place, the abundance of teaching websites or videos is mind-numbing. For example, you can now choose from about six websites that can teach you to code. In addition to coding websites, there are sites that teach foreign languages. Although Home Ec was a disaster in High School, you could revitalize your crafting career with lessons you learned off Reddit.
In the event that you got stuck, who could you turn to if you wanted to check a code you wrote? Until now, how could you be sure that what you were translating would be well understood by your audience? As long as you have a reliable connection to the internet, the number of places to ask questions and expect a high-quality answer is well organized and easy to use. However, you need to have a heap of digital literacy to understand the difference between an expert and a charlatan.
In fact, digital literacy is key to evaluating all kinds of information on the internet.
