This course begins with exploring the ubiquity of video games and digital media in contemporary society as a way of identifying and developing students' Information and Computing Technology (ICT) skills. The aim is to provide students with the relevant capacities needed for tertiary education, but these skills will be also relevant and useful for students in future professional contexts. Students will be given opportunities to explore the use of ICTs during the course, and to gain skills in word processing, using simple spreadsheets, accessing online sources, and participating in online discussions and digital presentations. They will explore how a variety of video games engage ICT skills and literacies, but will not be expected to 'perform' or 'compete' in games unless they choose to. The use of gaming and digital media literacies will focus on learning in a tertiary context, and how these literacies will be used for learning at the University of Adelaide
