The meaning of the term digital literacy has shifted over the years from basic competency to a more nuanced and all-encompassing proficiency that goes far beyond Google and Microsoft Word.
Today, digital literacy calls for students to develop the cognitive and technical skills required to use information and communication technologies:
- To find information and explain ideas or concepts.
- To apply information in new contexts.
- To analyze information and make connections between concepts.
- To evaluate and question their sources.
- To draw a strong conclusion and justify a stand or decision.
- To create a new or original product.
- To communicate and share information.
