Some Useful Links Related to the Questions of Digital Literacies

Here are several links which are somehow connected with the issues of digital literacies and which I've collected by this moment. So the first group of videos are on Digital Literacy in U.S. Higher Education, and the second group inclides some links to the sites related to the questions of Digital Literacy and English language teaching in the U.S. Hopefully, this experience can become rather useful in our teaching reality as well.
