Digital Citizenship

“Digital citizenship prepares students to survive and thrive in an environment embedded with information, communication and connections.” (Tan, p2)

Digital Literacy

“…digital literacy is the ability to use information and communication technologies to find, understand, evaluate, create and communicate digital information. Basic reading and writing skills are foundational; and true digital literacy requires both cognitive and technical skills.” (Digital Literacy, Libraries, and Public Policy – Report of the office of Information Technology Policy’s Digital Literacy Task Force, p1)

Problem-Based Learning

“PBL is any learning environment in which the problem drives the learning. That is, before students learn some knowledge they are given a problem. The problem is posed so that the students discover that they need to learn some new knowledge before they can solve the problem.” (Woods)

Connecting with Information Literacy

“Although academic libraries are more focused on information literacy than digital literacy, these two twenty-first century literacies are closely linked: information literacy requires digital literacy to access appropriate online research sources, and information literacy gives further context to the evaluation skills developed by digital literacy.” (Digital Literacy, Libraries, and Public Policy – Report of the office of Information Technology Policy’s Digital Literacy Task Force, p14)
