How are your students’ Web Literacy Skills?

How do you think your students are doing in terms of web literacy skills? Maybe you didn’t even know there was such a thing. The last you heard, there were information literacy skills promoted by your library, but how long has it been since you brought that up in class or incorporated it into your coursework?

Mozilla–yes, the same Mozilla that makes the Firefox browser–has published a Web Literacy Standard that you can read about here: https://webmaker.org/standard

Each item on the page is a link to more information. Are there some that are more pertinent to your discipline than others? Which ones could your students use more work with to perform better in your course and in their careers?

What is your opinion on how your institution can support students in building this literacy standard?
