Digital Literacy: Becoming digitally literate

Digital Literacy is the ability to navigate, evaluate and communicate digital information. With a proliferation of technology in children’s lives, being digitally literate is increasingly recognized as a key aspect of what it means to be educated. In what has been described as an ‘invisible climate change of culture’ (Harris, 2020), children are being asked to navigate the affordances and challenges that the digital world poses to their physical, emotional health and ability to thrive as autonomous citizens. Digital literacy requires within the curriculum an interdisciplinary approach between computing, citizenship and personal, social and emotional health learning.
