Abstract

This paper would attempt at explaining the digital literacy levels among ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) countries, how their awareness in this aspect emerged, and their causes. In their entrance into the 4.0 revolution, ASEAN countries experienced an increase in digital literacy levels, especially since. Countries with a high level of digital literacy maintained their policies and programs whereas countries with a low level of digital literacy expected to improve by implementing better programs and putting forward digital literacy aspects as their main policy. Digital literacy level among ASEAN countries is not different from one another. Nevertheless, the level of digital literacy can be ranked by mean rank from 1 to 8 that sequence is Singapore (24.6), Thailand (24.0), Indonesia (20,5), Vietnam (20.4), Myanmar (19, 90), Philippines (19.80), Malaysia (19.20) and Cambodia (15.6). The calculation of the Kruskal Wallis Test shows a significant number, that is 0.957. In conclusion, our H1 was rejected, which we interpreted as no difference from digital literacy levels among ASEAN countries. These were caused by information literacy, technology literacy, and media literacy of ASEAN countries which were almost at the same level. ASEAN countries had the capacity to produce digital content, to adopt new technology, to manage media information and to adopt technology in certain situations.
