What is Digital Literacy and why should you care? J Digital technologies influence how we:
- collect, manage and evaluate online information
- build an online identity for personal or career development
- create and curate content in both written and visual media
- communicate for networking, collaboration and project management purposes
- deal with privacy and security issues
- participate in events remotely and face to face
