Although the terms digital literacy and digital fluency are often used interchangeably, they are not the same, as articulated by Jennifer Sparrow: "How is digital fluency different from digital literacy? In learning a foreign language, a literate person can read, speak, and listen for understanding in the new language. A fluent person can create something in the language: a story, a poem, a play, or a conversation. Similarly, digital literacy is an understanding of how to use the tools; digital fluency is the ability to create something new with those tools."
