Articles on Digital Literacy are numerous, and a bit argumentative. They quibble about the definition…rather than explaining what it means to be digitally literate. I teach older adults how to use social media to communicate, but now that I’m working on my Masters in Education, I have learned that many people, not all over 50, struggle to understand technology and it’s function when it comes to consuming and creating information.

Here’s an article that uses a definition of digital literacy that resonates with me, and I hope you!!
