Information is everywhere, and a lot of information is available online. As technology becomes so prevalent in our day to day lives, digital skills are now necessary for lifelong learning.
It can be a little overwhelming as technologies change but don’t let worry stop you from increasing your digital skills to make your personal and learning life more convenient.
