Youth nowadays, are incredibly enthusiastic when it comes to using technology. Their day-to-day engagement seems natural and effortless, leading many to believe that youth are experts in all things digital. Youth engagement using digital tools mostly includes texting, video-streaming, and engaging on social media. While some are engaging in coding/HTML programs outside of educational institutions, the majority do not have access to formal guidance on how to use social media and technology to create and solve social problems meaning that youth is not necessarily digitally literate.
