    Great work!! I look forward to reading your paper. I’ve mentioned many times the digital literacy issues that I have personally encountered since returning to school. I think that including learning modules or content specifically addressing this concern would ensure students are in a better position to manage the many technological components of the work place – and better situates students to be confident when new technology is rolled out. Thanks Adetoke!
