The appropriation of digital content by higher education students reflects a significant change in learning paradigms. The traditional classroom model in which instructors were the sole source of information and knowledge is being replaced by a model that allows learners to collect, share and co-create knowledge. By integrating into the curriculum, this paper explores the potential of for both creating engaging learning experiences and cultivating digital information literacy skills. It will be shown that while facilitates engagement, it was less successful as a tool for improving students' digital information literacy skills.
