Digital literacy is the ability to understand, use and interact with technology, media and digital resources in real-world situations. Jeff Meyer, Director of Education at Learning.com, during a recent edWebinar, underscored that while this generation of students is growing up using technology, they generally lack the digital literacy skills they need for success by the time they enter high school. The tech and core standards of organizations such as ISTE, CSTA, and Common Core State Initiative stipulate that students need foundational digital literacy skills to demonstrate writing, reading, and mathematical achievement. It is imperative that students are prepared to enter high school ready for the rigors of writing advanced essays, conducting internet research, engaging in data collection, presenting ideas and drawing conclusions.
