Abstract
PCF10 Sub-theme: Building Resilience // The ongoing digitization of the education systems has introduced a new pedagogical approach to teaching and learning – Education 4.0 that aligns the fourth industrial revolution. Education 4.0 has improved the effectiveness and efficiency of learning globally. However, the issues and challenges associated with Education 4.0 or technology –enabled technology teaching and learning emerged when the global education system was mandated to technology-enabled learning during the pandemic. Both the educators and the learners were found to lack relevant digital skills to successfully facilitate the learning process. This study introduces the concept of digital literacy, a digital literacy framework and a digital literacy tool that can be used to effectively champion digital literacy skills to both the educators and the learners. The digital literacy tool has been successfully used in the South Pacific to evaluate digital literacy competencies and further improve the digital literacy competencies of the selected sample. As such, the digital literacy tool can be used to improve digital literacy of individuals in the developed and developing economies hence promoting educational resilience for all in the technology-enabled environment. // Paper ID 6338
