Teaching...non-traditional literacies led me to an important realization: I had been assuming-incorrectly-for years that all of my students possessed the more traditional literacies used in typical writing assignments. Why hadn't I been scaffolding those assignments as intentionally to teach those skills and mindsets? I don't have a good answer to that, but this is one reason it's critical that educators teach new digital literacies in their disciplines. Doing so gives us a much greater appreciation of the importance of teaching all kinds of literacies to our students, to prepare them for complex and challenging futures.

This work isn't easy, as it requires us to challenge ourselves to learn and teach new literacies that aren't always familiar to us. But it's important work, and that's why I'm excited to see this volume. I hope it will inspire and equip more educators to add [such] assignments and activities to their courses, ones that will empower students to navigate their increasingly complex digital lives." "Being a digital native does not equate to digital literacy. It is imperative that we teach our students to be digitally literate, if not fluent, as digital literacy is one of the most important issues our society currently faces. Integrating Digital Literacy in the Disciplines is a goldmine of information. Written by colleagues from throughout the world, this comprehensive book integrates habits of mind with multiple frameworks of digital literacy to deliver descriptions of programs, initiatives, classroom assignments, student projects, research, teaching strategies, frameworks, digital materials, course design, and more. Most impressive is the consistent focus on student learning." "Integrating Digital Literacy in the Disciplines is a must have guide for academic librarians, academic developers, and instructors interested in the topic. Novices will be introduced to the breadth of the term digital literacy while experts will find novel applications situated in disciplines. Hays and Kammer have done a fantastic job of compiling a variety of voices on an increasingly critical skill set.
