Abstract

The concept of literacy lies at the heart of education. As the industrial age has given way to the information age, the concept of literacy has expanded beyond simply reading and writing. Literacy now encompasses a broad set of skills and competencies. Digital literacy is a skill-set for a society permeated by the use of computers and information technologies. The current paper reviews the literature for the definitions and assessment methods of digital literacy—with the goal of bringing clarity for students and teachers in higher education tasked with acquiring and teaching these skills.
