For learners to nurture and develop their competences in Digital Literacy, educators need to provide them with a variety of learning opportunities where they can express themselves though different digital media and digital technologies in a multimodal manner, according to their individual learning style and needs. Digital content creation and publishing engages learners in creating digital artefacts for an authentic audience. This will help them develop their competences in communication and creativity, which all learners need to nurture and develop in 21st century learning.
