Great trends reflection Sarah! You raised some really interesting points about the way digital literacy tends to be taught which I found really interesting. I think the point you raised that people learn by doing is really important. I think libraries sometimes forget this when designing digital literacy programs or training in using databases and other resources. The tendency is to bombard people with information without necessarily getting them to do activities that apply the knowledge. As you mention the best way to learn is by doing, perhaps we need to rethink the way we approach digital literacy to take this into account 🙂
