Digital Literacy Training

Much more information has been posted about this:


Part of the National Broadband Plan was not only the increase in broadband adoption rates, but the creation of the Digital Literacy Corps. Libraries – in particular, public libraries – have been serving in this role for over a decade. The Federal Communications Commission, however, has now formalized it as part of the “Connect to Compete” project.

This is a non-profit initiative that includes both the public and private sectors. Companies like Best Buy and Microsoft are partners, as are libraries.

Chairman Genachowski’s proposal would enable thousands of more libraries to host in-person,
basic digital literacy training programs.

At least some of the resources to help libraries fulfill this vision will be from the Institute for Museum and Library Services, so keep watch!
