Digital literacy is the ability to understand and use information and communication technology (ICT). It requires a working knowledge of computer software and being able to decipher sounds and visual representations, for example icons. Digital literacy also involves applying language skills, especially reading and writing -but speaking and listening are also used increasingly within ICT. People with weak literacy skills usually find ICT challenging and this impairs their ability to fully participate in a society where computer skills are an integral part of work, school and everyday life.
