Digital Literacy - What is it?

"Digital literacy—also sometimes referred to as digital competency, digital media literacy, or media literacy—has several loose definitions. They aim to define literacy in relation to a range of different Internet & Communication Technologies (ICTs), including computer software applications, Internet sites such as social media and blog sites, and email programs, as well as the ability to access the Internet, and what the Internet offers, through other technologies, such as iPads and mobile phones. In short, digital literacy skills are those that enhance a user’s ability to navigate, locate, read, organize, nterpret, share, evaluate, and create texts, images, and sounds with digital tools in a digital environment."
