Net Literacy asked to create an international digital literacy best practices website.
Following the Broadband Adoption Summit jointly conducted by Net Literacy, the USIIA, and Broadband for America and after a meeting in Hong Kong and in conjunction with numerous NGOs, IPSs, and trade associations, Net Literacy is launching the first international digtial inclusion “best practices” website. Still in the construction phase with hundreds of best practices already submitted and not yet entered into the database, the beta website can be viewed by clicking on Digital Literacy.
Net Literacy will begin an outreach program to gain input and suggestions for the website as it is further enhanced at conferences including:
iWeek on September 15-17 in South Africa – click on the link
Broadband Expo on November 1-3 in Dallas, Texas – click on the link
ISPs, Broadband trade associations, and nonprofits are sending their support and best practice submissions. During the first two weeks, we’ve received the support of the following organizations (which excludes the Wireless Communications International Association that we received just minutes ago). Net Literacy CTO Brian Kelley and Student President Daniel Kent constructed and posted the website.
