TGC – Digital Literacy

Digital Literacy

Digital Literacy is the ability to navigate, evaluate, and communicate information online or in any digital format. In practice, Digital Literacy integrates three main skills:
1. The ability to consume information. This is the ability to complete digital tasks like using an e-reader in a classroom, viewing online banking statements, or reading an online news article.
2. The ability to create information. This skill includes everything from making and editing videos to writing articles and creating and editing PDFs.
3. The ability to communicate information. This is the ability to share information online. Communication can look like many different things from composing a tweet to sending an email to sharing documents on a cloud drive.

Projects & Initiatives

The Transparency and Governance Center (TGC) works with campus and community partners to advance digital literacy and equity.
