It was one of the first projects of its kind to measure the impact of digital literacy programmes. Digital literacy is now available as a short course on the Junior Cycle in seconday schools. “It was developed in response to what we thought would give our students the best overall learning experience,” says Dawn O’ Sullivan, the school’s digital literacy teacher. The definition of what it means to be digitally literate is expanding beyond the creation of digital information to include the understanding of this information. Digital literacy, they say, will be essential for anyone to flourish inthis new world order.
