May 03 is marked as World Press Freedom Day. This year UNESCO will celebrate the day at Latvia, Riga under the theme, “Let Journalism Thrive! Towards Better Reporting, Gender Equality, and Safety in the Digital Age”.
Since it is about digital age, it is vital to understand what #DigitalLiteracy really mean.

Let’s me share with you from the book I have read (Youth Identity and Digital Media). Digital or media literacy is more than knowing how to access to information. It goes further. It concerns how we are able to evaluate the information we accessed to turn the information into meaningful knowledge.
Digital literacy helps you to understand why and how the information is produced, what are reasons the media producers create the content, and how media represent the world?
