Using the structured conceptualization method of concept mapping, a mixed-method participatory approach that combines group processes with a sequence of multivariate statistical analyses. A total of twenty experts comprising of school administrators, teachers, researchers, and experts in the field shall be invited to generate the underlying dimensions that can encompass the holistic definition and ultimately develop a global literacy scale. Results show that technology has taken part in various dimensions of the scale. Implications suggest that within the different indicators, the importance and the feasibility of attainment of the various dimensions shall provide not only educators in the academia, but also the other stakeholders, such as parents and students, the much needed information and know-how in the development of a holistic individual who uses technology wisely.
