Digital literacy has become the new buzzword in education as parents and educators alike work to help students prepare for a world that is increasingly online. Digital literacy involves a plethora of skills: including the ability to read and interpret media, to reproduce data and images through digital manipulation, and to evaluate and apply new knowledge gained from digital environments. In short, digital literacy is defined not only by the ability to use technology to read and write, but by the ability to use it effectively.
