|BASIC ELEMENTS OF DIGITAL LITERACY|
|Access||Knowing about and knowing how to collect and/or retrieve information.||Search, find, and retrieve information in digital environments.|
|Manage||Applying an existing organizational or classification scheme.||Conduct a rudimentary and preliminary organization of accessed information for retrieval and future application.|
|Integrate||Interpreting and representing information - summarizing, comparing, and contrasting.||Interpret and represent information by using ICT tools to synthesize, summarize, compare, and contrast information from multiple sources.|
|Evaluate||Making judgments about the quality, relevance, usefulness, or efficiency of information.||Judge the currency, appropriateness, and adequacy of information and information sources for a specific purpose (including determining authority, bias, and timelines of materials).|
|Create||Generating information by adapting, applying, designing, inventing, or authoring information.||Adapt, apply, design, or invent information in ICT environments (to describe an event, express an opinion, or support a basic argument, viewpoint or position).|
|Communicate||Communicate information persuasively to meet needs of various audiences through use of an appropriate medium.||Communicate, adapt, and present information properly in its context (audience, media) in ICT environments and for a peer audience.|
|Note: Existing international and national digital literacy frameworks and assessment instruments all share these common elements.|
