Educational Leadership Volume 55, Number 3, ISSN 0013-1784


Digital literacy, the ability to understand, evaluate, and integrate information in multiple, computer-delivered formats, is a critical skill. A multimedia computer with an Internet connection allows people to construct information from around the world. Virtual instruction is best used to supplement, not replace classroom teachers. Educators should use filters and search engines to determine the best Web pages for instructional purposes. (MLH)
