Today, students communicate in a language richer than any used before in the classroom. Beyond words, they use sounds, videos, and images. It’s called digital literacy, and it empowers students to create engaging communication, develop a personal brand, and differentiate themselves in the search of a successful career. For students, it’s an expectation. Among universities, it’s a necessity.
