âDigital literacy is the ability to interpret and design nuanced communication across fluid digital forms.â
Digital literacy in simple words is the ability to find, evaluate, utilize, share, and create content using information technologies and the Internet.
It is "The capability to use digital technology and knowing when and how to use it." Digital literacy is when students are able to engage with multi-media to read and interpret text, sounds and images. Digital literacy is when students can manipulate and evaluate data to construct their own meaning. Digital literacy also includes a student having knowledge about how to use technology to construct meaning, but most importantly in ways that are appropriate to their needs.
