ILA Resource Collection: Digital Literacy and Learning, Ages 5-11


Being digitally literate today means much more than having technical know-how. It encompasses the ability to move fluidly between our digital and analog worlds. Most important, it encompasses a level of intention and criticality that sets one up for success in a world that will continue to evolve at a relentless pace.

The Digital Literacy and Learning collections build on the skills students need for this fluency by focusing on

  • Youth expertise, interests, and out-of-school practices
  • Meaningful, productive play and engagement
  • Mindful practices that foster critical literacies and digital citizenship
  • Scaffolding and assessment
  • Personal inquiry and online research
