digital literacy

The capabilities required to live, learn and work in a digital society.

The concept of digital literacies is emergent, context dependent and socially negotiable. Key capabilities for students and teachers include the ability to use digital tools to search and critically evaluate large volumes of knowledge and the creative remix of complex information across disciplines. Digital literacy focuses on what tools to use and how to use them.
