Sistem Demokrasi Pancasila yang dipilih oleh para pendiri bangsa Indonesia melahirkan beberapa konsekuensi logis. Diantaranya menuntut peran negara dalam mengatur kebijakan pemerataan keadilan. Keadilan tidak hanya pada persoalan pemerataan sumber-sumber ekonomi, namun juga pemerataan akses informasi. Dalam masyarakat, akses informasi ini di sebut sebagai paradigma teknologi informasi. Paradigma ini berarti ketika semua sistem yang menggunakan teknologi informasi didefinisikan oleh 'logika jaringan' yang memungkinkan mereka memengaruhi suatu varietas luas proses-proses dan organisasi-organisasi. Ketika "logika jaringan" tersebut telah terjadi dengan melimpahnya akses informasi di dunia maya lalu langkah-langkah seperti apa yang diterapkan oleh Negara khususnya Dinas Pendidikan dan Olahraga Provinsi Yogyakarta untuk mendidik siswa dan guru sebagai bagian dari pemerataan keadilan dalam teknologi informasi? Kota ini dipilih berkaitan dengan payung riset yang dilakukan bersama-sama dengan Jaringan Pegiat Literasi Media (Japelidi) pada tahun 2017. Penelitian ini menggunakan instrumen yang telah disusun melalui pengayaan teori digital literasi berkaitan dengan tujuan penelitian yaitu, memetakan aktivitas Literasi Digital. Melalui desk study, observasi dan wawancara mendalam sebagai metode, peneliti menemukan upaya pendidikan literasi yang dilakukan KPID DIY masih berkutat dalam perspektif proteksionis sedangkan BTKP DIY lebih pada pendekatan media kreatif sebagai upaya menggunakan teknologi sebagai bagian dari pemberdayaan.
