Digital Literacy

Digital Literacy

Teenagers have a better understanding of the digital world than we do; however it is important to educate them on this 21st century essential skill to thrive in today’s digital world.

The younger generations are ignorant of a life without smart phones, Google or Social Media. Social networks have become a vital part of one’s daily life. The learners must be aware of their boundaries and it is the responsibility of educational institutions to advise the learners to use the modern technology safely and to educate them on the potential dangers of misusing the same.

What is digital literacy?

Digital literacy is more than a person’s ability to use modern technology such as a smart phone or a tablet. It is about using the technology appropriately to communicate with others and using search engines and credible sites to search for relevant information, identifying reliable sources and being aware of online safety always.

How to develop digital literacy and writing skills?

There are lots of tools and platforms designed for learning on smart phones. Setting a time and preparing a project on a favourite topic will help a long way in developing digital literacy.

Writing skills are vital in a learner’s life. Nowadays, text language is affecting the ability to write in formal English with appropriate spellings, so it is important that the learners know who they are writing to, the purpose of their letter or message and the type of language they must use. Writing formal texts such as cover letters for a job application explaining why he/she is an ideal candidate for the job and CV writing are inevitable in one’s life.

At London Professional College, we support you throughout your learning journey with us and also help you find your dream job by providing one to one support on CV writing, Presentations and Interviewing Skills.
