Digital literacy has always been important, but in today’s society it has become the way of life. Digital literacy has become such a high demand in everyday life. We utilize digital literacy in our daily life in some form or fashion. In today’s society job applications are completed via computer, and patient charts are electronic files. We utilize digital literacy to stay in contact with family and friends that are long distance. Digital literacy is very important in my field of study Criminal Justice because it allow researchers to collect more accurate data. The data can be used to make comparisons with other agencies to see whats working in the criminal justice system.
