The value of any IT system can be calculated by how extensively it’s adopted by its users. And this degree of user adoption depends in turn on how well those users understand it. In other words, how digitally literate they are.
“Digital literacy is the set of competencies required for full participation in a knowledgeable society. It includes knowledge, skills and behaviours involving the effective use of digital devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop PCs for purposes of communication, expression, collaboration and advocacy.” Wikipedia.
We currently have four generations operating to a greater or lesser degree in the digital realm, and the levels of literacy between the groups varies:
• Baby Boomers (born between 1946 and 1960)
• Generation X (1961 – 1980)
• Generation Y, or Millenials (1981 – 2000)
• Generation Z (2001 – 2017)
The last 18 months have seen the greatest number of additions to productivity enrichment tools in history, and the big question of the day is, “When (and How) To Use What.
But if you don’t know what it is, or what it does, how can you possibly know when to use it? Even those “digital natives” who were born into a technological world need training to fully appreciate it.
