About the CDVL

The Center for Digital and Visual Literacy is a resource for staff, students and faculty to cultivate digital literacy. The center employs staff and student tutors who help facilitate the exploration of problem solving options that advance digital and visual skills for academic, personal, and professional projects, ideas, and use.

Mission, Vision, and Purpose

The Center for Digital and Visual Literacy develops our students to be honorable, creative and knowledgeable digital citizens.

Digital literacy includes behaviors and competencies that illustrate the effective use of software, applications and digital devices for the purpose of expression, engagement, collaboration, advocacy, and innovation. A digitally literate person understands the relationship between technology, life-long learning, personal privacy, and stewardship of information. Further, a digitally literate person uses these skills and the appropriate technology to communicate and collaborate with peers, colleagues, family, and the general public. 

Digitally literate Scotties will be ready to actively participate in our increasingly civic and socially justice oriented society and contribute to a vibrant, informed, and engaged global community.
