Abstract

Literacy is more than the ability to decode words and digital literacy is more than the ability to use a computer. This paper will attempt to define digital literacy and the benefits it provides to both the English language learner (ELL) and the English language instructor. It will also explore some of the misconceptions surrounding digital literacy and try to show that there is a need for basic training in this area for all language educators. Schools have taken the first step by providing access to computer technology in the classrooms; however, most have short-changed students in the development of digital skills.

Keywords: Digital Literacy, English as Second Language, English Language Learner, Technology in Language Education, Learn English Websites
