Conceptualizing Digital Literation on Academic Development


  • Dr.Wagbara, Sampson Owazuaka


Digital literacy according to Agim and Azolo (2019) is the set of attitudes, understanding and skills to handle and communicate information and knowledge effectively, in a variety of media and formats. A person also can perform tasks effectively in a digital environment. Digital literacy includes the ability to read and interpret media, reproduce data and images through digital manipulation, and evaluate and apply new knowledge gained from digital environments. Digital literacy involves more than the mere ability to use software or operate a digital device; it includes a large variety of complex cognitive, motor, sociological, and emotional skills, which users (senior secondary school students) need to function effectively in digital environments.
