Literates and knowledge: the digital literacy


Diego Levis


The digital literacy is one of the principal challenges which education faces today. A real digital literacy does not consist of teaching only how to use a computer and different computer applications, but it must also offer the basic elements for the comprehension and managing of the language in which the programs are codified. The dilemma is to form a society of users of the technology or a society who incorporates one new way of conceiving and creating knowledge.
