Digital literacy means having the skills we need to live, learn, and work in a society where communication and access to information is increasingly through digital technologies like internet platforms, social media, and mobile devices. Communication is also a key aspect of digital literacy. This research introduces a term-long project that draws on students’ digital literacy strengths while providing them with opportunities to hone their less developeddigital literacy skills. The design of the project was informed by the principles of project-based learning (PBL). To investigate the effectiveness of this project in improving participants’ skills, the researchers administered a survey to 113 participants in two sections of a course at MyanmarUniversity. The participants indicated that they perceived improvement in their study skills and technology skillsdue to their completion of the project. While the methods used in this project limit its generalizability, it contributes to the limited amount of research available on PBL in the Myanmar context.
