Supporting your studies
Whether you consider yourself an expert in new tech or a digital newbie, it's important to think about the digital skills you already have and the new skills you'd like to learn.
When you start uni it'll benefit your studies if you know how to:
- use digital technologies to find, evaluate and create information
- communicate effectively with online technologies
- select the correct tools to complete online and offline tasks
- perform tasks efficiently in a variety of digital environments
Whatever you're studying you'll need to know how to work with digital technologies, stay safe online and build a positive online presence. You should consider the digital elements that are important for your course too – since the digital skills you'll use in mathematics will be different to the skills used in history and other subjects.
These digital skills pages will help you assess what sort of digital learner you are and offer guidance and support. You can also use this digital literacy playlist on LinkedIn Learning.
