Professor Renee Hobbs argues that digital literacy is an expanded conceptualization of literacy that requires technical, cognitive, social, emotional and civic competencies. Educators and students become co-learners since creating media involves a balance between creative freedom and creative control. Digital authorship is a process that involves choice, courage, risk-taking and vulnerability. Digital literacy activates intellectual curiosity and helps support the habit of learning for a lifetime
