We must prepare our students for the un-imagined future by providing opportunities to fail, adapt, and persevere. As the future continually unfolds, they must be able to understand how to apply processes that allow for problem identification, solution design, and experimentation for success. Mastering the components of digital literacy provides the foundation for this knowledge.
There are many definitions that encompass the meaning, impact, and the importance of Digital Literacy in today’s educational environment. The definition shared here is from the University Library of The University of Illinois:
