"Apples and Oranges"

You cannot merge Digital Literacy with Computer Literacy.

Digital Literacy is beyond Computer Literacy. Digital Literacy encompasses computer hardware, computer software, the Internet, cell phones, PDAs, and any other digital devices.

In 1997, Paul Gilster introduced the concept of digital literacy in a book of the same name as the term that is now generally used.

Libraries are using electronic games to increase awareness about the digital literacy.

A person that is using digital literacy skills to interact with society may be called a digital citizen.
