What Is Digital Literacy

And Why We Need It

“Digital Literacy involves a sufficient working knowledge of current digital usage that citizens can function in their daily lives using digital media. Digitally literate people can communicate and work more efficiently, especially with those who possess the same knowledge and skills.”  – ICTC

Significant changes to the labour market require the increased use of technology including digital platforms, applications and tools.


Employees and job seekers are required to use technology to effectively find information, communicate, collaborate, and fulfill responsibilities.


Digital literacy is a critical skill set that increases employability and supports life-long learning. A practical understanding of digital tools are beneficial for life and work.
