The focus is on fostering digital resilience by implementing effective instructional strategies including clear modelling and extensive scaffolding, strengths-based approaches, celebrating success, encouraging a flexible mindset and learner-centered instruction. Overall, this research underscores the importance of empowering teachers and learners with tools to navigate the evolving landscape of digital literacy.
