Elementary school students as alpha generation or internet generation are users who are familiar and very dependent on technology especially with social media. Research on digital literacy is still rare, especially in Indonesia. The subjects of this study are students aged 11-12 years who are active users of social media. This research uses a qualitative approach with a case study method. The informants used as the sample of the study were five people and one key informant from a media literacy expert. The findings in this study indicate the importance of digital literacy education which has a positive impact on knowledge, understanding, and skills in using social mediathatis currently usedasa source of information and entertainment by the public, especially among the alpha generation that can bring about awareness in using social media. In this study, not all participants had the skills to use social media properly. So digital literacy education is a solution that can be done by the government and elements of society and academics who care about the progress of the nation.
