Abstract

This study investigates the relationship between multiple intelligence (MI) and digital literacy among university-level students. Drawing on Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences & contemporary understandings of digital literacy, research explores how different intelligence styles may influence many aspects of digital competency. Study population included all university students of District Lahore, and 600 students were selected randomly from this population. Quantitative research design was adopted for study in which standardized questionnaires were adopted for the study. Findings of study showed significant correlation amid specific intelligence styles & components of digital literacy, highlighting role of intrapersonal intelligence in communication, content creation, and safety within digital environments. Conversely, the verbal-linguistic intelligence shows limited correlation with digital literacy, stressing nuanced nature of intelligence-digital literacy associations. Furthermore, correlations reveal that content creation skills are associated with the intrapersonal intelligence & safety component, while the problem-solving was significantly linked to musical intelligence.
