Social Responsibility and Engaging the Entire Family

Increasing Digital Inclusion is Socially Responsible and the Entire Family Must be Engaged in the Home Learning Process

Cost relevance and literacy are barriers to adoption and those barriers affect some sub-sections of our population more than other sections. Since broadband is a gateway to the empowerment that the Internet offers, it is socially responsible to encourage broadband adoption and digital inclusion. Computers for Youth has learned that it is vitally important to involve the entire family. Parents play a critical role and are the gatekeepers in the home and their engagement in the learning process facilitates home learning, digital inclusion, and digital literacy. Speakers at the Roadmap to Broadband Adoption held in Washington DC by the USIIA, Net Literacy, and Broadband for America included:

  • Karen Perry, FCC National Broadband Taskforce
  • Blair Levin, Communications & Society Fellow, Aspen Institute
  • Elisabeth Stock, President, Computers for Youth
