Digital technologies have made their way into all aspects of contemporary life, and we require digital literacy to navigate a world that's more connected than ever before. When it comes to employability, digital literacy is as critical as traditional literacy and numeracy. Research shows that demand for digital skills increased between 200% between 2012 and 2015 alone. And jobs requiring digital literacy pay significantly more than jobs that don't. The question is, how digitally literate are you? And how can you prove it? Deakin University is a leader in work-integrated learning, provides internationally recognised credentials, and workplace capabilities.
