AbstractThis study reveals the digital literacy in learning activities using mediated communication between teachers and students at primary school in Bandung City during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study uses a qualitative method with a case study approach to reveal the experiences of primary school teachers in conveying online material to their students, how messages delivered, and what obstacles they face in the process. Data collected by interviews with teachers of several primary schools in Bandung City who implement online teaching, supported by literature sources related to this research.The informants selected with the snowball-sampling technique. The results showed, at the beginning of the implementation of distance learning, elementary school teachers in Bandung had limited knowledge about the use of communication media in learning and how to deliver learning materials. This is because there is no material preparation to be taught. Over time, teachers learn to recognize online communication media for learning. Delivering messages carried out through social media. Some teachers prepare lesson material well and deliver it through existing digital platforms, directly to children or through parents. However, some teachers still have difficulty using applications related to photo processing, so it is not uncommon for teachers to ask parents for help to operate the program or combine photos.
