𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙙𝙞𝙜𝙞𝙩𝙖𝙡 𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙮? Everything has changed over the last year. Parents working from home have had to make giant leaps, almost overnight, with their digital skills. Ironically, at a time when both parents and teachers have been concerned with children’s overload of screen time, parents have questioned whether schools are adequately preparing children for a future that is likely to be increasingly digital.
𝘼 𝙙𝙚𝙛𝙞𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣? Defining digital literacy is complex. It can be so much more than the ability to use a computer. At its broadest, it is a term that can expand far beyond using a word processing document, creating a spreadsheet and sending e-mails. For some users, digital literacy includes coding and cyberspace mastery.
𝘼𝙘𝙧𝙤𝙨𝙨 𝙞𝙣𝙙𝙪𝙨𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨 Almost all industries have changed, “There’s no institution that has not been profoundly impacted by digital technology,” says Todd Taylor, Professor of English at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. “Whether you’re studying science or social science, you need digital literacy to contribute as a worker in the current digital economy.”
𝙎𝙤𝙛𝙩 𝙨𝙠𝙞𝙡𝙡𝙨 As users’ digital literacy increases it is becoming apparent that employees are actually requiring greater people skills. Users must anticipate how their apps, presentations and videos will impact on receivers. Then they must be ready for the subsequent discussion, successful interaction will involve people becoming active and connective users of content. Looking to the future, digital literacy will encourage creativity and individuality.
