THE ROLE OF TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION IN DEVELOPING DIGITAL LITERACY EDUCATION AND STUDENT INFORMATION
Digital literacy is an essential mean of lifelong learning and serves to link people and participation in governance. The academic world is not ignorant about the significance of digital literacy as it encourages library professionals to train students effectively. This involves using digital technology to improve the student’s level of knowledge and digital literacy skills. This study specifically examines the role of technology integration in developing digital literacy education and student knowledge. The study used an online questionnaire to collect the primary data, which was further analyzed using SPSS. A total of 123 responses were statistically analyzed, and the study findings were derived on the basis of descriptive statistics and chi-square. The results show that an association between the variables varies is based on gender, major, and GPA. The results further indicates that there is a significant association between technology integration and digital literacy education. The relationship between how to use digital tools to find information is strictly significant as compared with the student information of GPA. Moreover, the relationship between students who are showing digital literacy and developing competence in digital literacy is significantly based on the student’s major. However, the association between exposure to digital literacy and the encouragement of the student to continue learning digital skills and information literacy is not significant across the information of the students. Based on these findings, this study, therefore, recommends that policymakers should further concentrate on making progress towards technology into the process of digital literacy education. Furthermore, the library management should work on providing a long-term strategy for improving digital literacy training for students.
