Keywords:Digital Literacy, Historical Awareness
Education and literacy are two components that cannot be separated. In today's educational world, however, students are reluctant to read books due to technological developments. Indeed, the existence of technology will make it easier to access various knowledge and information, including learning history. History learning plays an important role, namely not only as a process of conveying ideas but also as a process of maturation in students to understand the identity, identity and personality of the nation through understanding historical events. The lack of historical awareness influences the lack of knowledge about the history that exists in the area. Historical consciousness is ultimately not only a link to dark events in the past, but also to learn lessons from every incident in the past as a driving force for the spirit of struggle to strengthen the sense of love for the homeland and national identity. Therefore, this research focuses on integrating technology, namely the importance of digital literacy in an effort to build historical awareness in students. In this case, the author uses the literature study method by collecting a number of articles from research results that are in line with the theme of the research and other written sources. As a result of this research, historical learning using digital literacy can improve students' ability to better interpret historical events in students' lives, thereby building historical awareness. Digital literacy is one of the tools for shaping students' critical, analytical and creative thinking skills. Implementing digital literacy in schools is an important matter so that everyone can become aware of the progress of the country.
