Conclusion:

Digital literacy is a concept that is not uniformly understood by any group of educators. In certain subject areas, it may be interpreted more narrowly than others. When discussed globally, as it applies to K-12 education, digital literacy holds certain goals that apply across subject areas and grade levels.
