Digital fluency is defined as “the ability to use technologies in a confident manner”.(Howell, 2012) Digital fluency is an important skill that is expected to be taught in formal schooling “effective learning with technology in primary and lower secondary school phase of learning is still anchored to creative activity, experimental activity and purposeful activity”. (Howell, 2012, p 147) There is an extensive range of digital technologies that can be used in the classroom; these technologies tend to have an emphasis on been creative, but they are building up a range of skills that will be able to be used later throughout secondary school. As a teacher it’s essential to be digital fluent with the digital technologies that you are using or planning to use within the classroom.
