Digital literacy is much broader than individual capacity to read and communicate online. Digital literacy is important for self-reliant digital skills across a broad range of devices. Digital literacy also includes, among others; critical comprehension of online material, digital communication in a variety of forms (email, discussion forums, chat rooms and webinars), online and collaborative publishing; and cloud storage and sharing.

In this webinar we will cover
