I am currently employed as a Lecturer at Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Institute of Education (SHBIE), Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD), since September 2007. My teaching activities involve modules that relate to the applications of digital technology in education. I have completed my Ph.D. on 'Enhancing Digital Literacy skills while playing Casual
Games: Young People in Brunei As a Case Study' from King's College London. I had previously worked as an Education Officer under the Department of Schools, Ministry of Education where I gained experience in various areas, both academic and administrative. Following my interest, I subsequently upgraded my qualifications and undertook a Masters of Arts (MA) in ICT and Education at the University of Leeds, UK, under self-sponsorship, and graduated with an MA (Pass with Merit) in ICT and Education.

With heavily rely on digital technologies, teaching and learning processes in higher education requires students to have digital literacy skills. According to Eshet (2012), digital literacy skill is a survival skill which students need in order to function effectively in digital learning environments. With Eshet’s model of digital literacy skill as a framework, this project aims to assess the digital literaciness of students in higher education. Based on Prensky’s assumption, these students are categorised as the digital native generation, in which this generation lives their lives immersed in digital technologies and that they learn differently from previous generations.
