We are all living, learning and working in a digital world and increasingly we need to know how to:
"use digital tools to find good quality information, be critically aware of the strengths and shortcomings of such information, be able to make sense, interpret and apply that information for our needs, then communicate our findings, and, potentially, also develop both confidence and creativity in using and engaging with tools and resources"
