This article expresses the importance of implementing technology into modern education, while also suggesting that it needs to be done in a meaning full way. With constant evolution, people need to be able to utilise technologies to find information and also share information with others. Therefore, digital literacies have now become just as relevant as traditional literacy in developing students’ both cognitively and socially. Expressed in this article is a warning that students who lack technological literacy skills are being left behind, and this is why finding a relationship between teaching literacy and teaching technology could help to improve understanding and skills within both content areas.
