The Digital Literacies Toolkit is an interactive learning tool developed by the eLanguages unit within the School of Modern Languages at the University of Southampton (http://www.elanguages.ac.uk/digital_literacies.php ). The purpose of this set of learning resources is to help students: explore the educational uses of Web 2.0 tools and services, to familiarise themselves with a range of useful applications for study-related purposes, and to highlight good practice in the use of social software and the internet, in general.
