What is digital literacy?

 Digital literacy is defined by Jones-Kavalier and Flannigan (2006) as “the ability to read and interpret media (text, sound, images) to reproduce data and images through digital manipulation, and to evaluate and apply new knowledge gained from digital environments, with the most critical of these being the ability to make educated judgments about what we find online.”
