Digital Literacy

In order to be literate in today’s media-rich environments, young people need to develop knowledge, values and a whole range of critical thinking, communication and information management skills for the digital age. As increasing numbers of businesses, services and even democratic processes migrate online, citizens who lack digital literacy skills risk being disadvantaged when it comes to accessing healthcare, government services and opportunities for employment, education and civic participation. Digital literacy is not confined to the parts of the curriculum that traditionally deal with technology: Digital literacy is as much a key part of learning about history and learning how to study history, and learning about science and learning how to study science, as it is about learning about Digital Literacy and learning the skills of using Digital Literacy. Indeed, possessing digital literacy is an important set of life skills to complement and extend the skills and knowledge already taught in school.
