The term digital describes electronic technology that generates stores and processes data in terms of two states which is either positive or negative, 0 or 1.

However, literacy is the ability to read and write or the ability to use language to read, write, listen and speak.

Digital literacy is a term that refers to someone’s ability to understand, organize, locate, analyze, and evaluate information by using digital forms of technology. It includes writing papers, creating multimedia presentations, and posting information about yourself or others. It is also the awareness, attitude and ability of individuals to appropriately use digital tools and facilities to identify access, manage, integrate, evaluate, analyze and synthesize digital resources.
