Digital Literacy and Citizenships


Digital Literacy

Digital literacy is the ability to safely, responsibly and critically navigate, evaluate and create information using a range of digital technologies.

As technology continues to evolve, our students are exposed to media in new ways and with increased frequency. The Technology Department is focused on providing teachers, administrators, and parents with tools and resources to teach digital literacy skills, safety and ethics. 

Digital Literacy includes 3 strands:

  • Information Literacy
  • Digital Citizenship
  • Safety and Security
