- The Covid-19 pandemic has caused the learning system from elementary to tertiary level to change using distance learning. This causes all stakeholders need to master digital devices so they can follow the learning well. The digital abilities of students as learning subjects are on the spotlight because they are considered capable of operating qualified digital devices. This study aims to measure the digital literacy ability of students and then compare the digital literacy ability of students in terms of location. This research used a quantitative approach with a survey method. The study population was elementary school teacher education students in Bandung and Cilacap. Then, the sample from the study was chosen purposively based on their respective affiliations. Data collection techniques used questionnaire through the Google form while the data analysis used descriptive statistics. Furthermore, the results of the study indicate that the digital literacy abilities of students are in the medium category. Students already have decent mastery in digital media but they do not pay attention to aspects related to the writing code of ethics such as including valid references and very rarely access the journal as a source of literature. In terms of hardware usage aspects, students have shown better development because they can use applications that support distance learning activities. Thus, the researcher concludes that in terms of location all prospective teachers have medium category on digital literacy ability.
