The objectives were to (1) develop the digital literacy learning package with VARK learning styles, and (2) to examine the effectiveness of the digital learning package. A mixed method was employed. The results of the Visual Aural, Read/Write, and Kinesthetic (VARK) learning style featured cartoons, based on questionnaires answered by the children, found that Kinesthetic was chosen most (38%), Read/Write (24%), Aural (20%), and Visual (18%) respectively. They supported the kinesthetic approach to the package design, and the mixture of the others. The results of the survey on the seven specified digital literacy skills answered by the children’s parents, were found that the analysis, access, evaluation, communication, and reflection skills were at the moderate level, while the taking action, and creative skills were at the low level, according to 1.00-5.00 means 5 range .50 from the lowest to highest level. The designed package contributed to the students’ digital literacy skills evaluation at 6.1 mean score from pre-test. The findings implied that digital literacy learning design should cover all digital literacy skills which were considered equally vital. However, digital media ethics should be emphasized. Kinesthetic-based design for both online and offline interactive activities supported successful learning in students. Also, collaboration between teachers, students and parents contributed to the enhancement in digital literacy learning.
