In the video above, Dr Darren Reed outlines the importance of our online identities, and how essential it is that we possess the necessary skills – the digital literacies – required to forge those identities: identities that allow us to participate in online communities.

Personal identity is a complex and multifaceted concept: our identity is crafted from a number of different factors: our background, ethnic group, interactions with other, beliefs, the decisions we make…

Our personal identity is something that evolves over time and can change, sometimes drastically, throughout our lifetime as we interact with new people and gain new knowledge and understandings.
