Literacy At the core of literacy are reading and writing. However, a broader look at literacy reveals that it includes not only reading and writing but the ability to engage in all types of communication— whether textual, graphical, auditory, or otherwise . Furthermore, literacy involves not only communication but also managing the information that is transmitted by any communication medium. It involves knowing how to produce meaning with different communication media: blogs, text messages, Internet memes, social networks, and multiuser virtual environments (MUVEs).

Digital Literacies Digital literacies represent in whole the essential skills for managing information and communication in the rapidly changing and increasingly digital world that is the 21st century. Digital literacies are not merely about gaining new technology skills or learning to use new tools. Instead, digital literacies are adaptable skills that actually enable us to capitalize on those technical skill sets and navigate the information superhighway. The ability to constantly adapt existing skills and develop new ones when appropriate.
