The essential foundational capabilities for developing your personal digital literacies are;
- have the curiosity to figure out how something works by taking it a part, moving things around, breaking it and getting it working again.
- have the patience to stick with it until it is done, when something (an experiment) doesn't work out you need the patience to try again and again without losing focus through frustration.
- have the grit to see the bigger picture and stick with it. Many things will push you away from being successful in developing digital literacies. Have the grit to stay with it long term. Digital literacy is an ongoing practice. As new technologies and approaches emerge, remaining literate will require an ongoing practice.
