Abstract

Nowadays, the ability to use modern digital tools is a prerequisite for teachers,
given the fact that information and communication technologies are rapidly developing. Since
digital literacy allows you to critically evaluate, select and effectively use information tools and
platforms in the educational process, the digital transformation of education requires advanced
preparation of future teachers to work in digital educational environments; mastering modern
pedagogical technologies; developing readiness to use digital tools and resources.
The purpose of the article is to identify the level of digital literacy of prospective teachers and
determine the direction of target indicators for using digital technologies in the educational
process.
The theoretical analysis identified elements of digital literacy; levels of digital literacy skills of
prospective English language teachers.
To achieve the research question, thematic analysis was used, where methods such as open
questioning and semi-structured interviews (questionnaire, interview) were used. The study
revealed that future teachers were aware of a wide range of digital technologies and were able to
use them for personal, educational and professional purposes. The definition of digital literacy
by future teachers has several levels, ranging from basic knowledge to advanced, creative and
collaborative degrees of application.
The results of the study can be used to develop educational programs for advanced training of
future teachers and adjust the individual trajectory of professional development.
