Abstract

Digital literacy is more then just using software. It includes reading instructions from graphical interfaces (photo-visual literacy), utilizing digital reproduction in learning (reproduction literacy), constructing knowledge from non-linear navigation (lateral literacy), and evaluating information (information literacy). These literacies serve as a measure of the learners' work quality in digital environments. The present paper proposes a terminology framework for digital literacy. Discussion of every literacy type is accompanied by results from a study that examined the ability of learners to effectively utilize digital literacy in educational contexts.
