About Digital Literacy
The Digital Literacy “best practices” website is a reference and a celebration of the many good ideas that have been successfully used to promote digital literacy and digital inclusion. No advertising is accepted – and digital inclusion best practices can be sent to [email protected] for consideration. The site is maintained by Net Literacy as a service and in appreciation of the many NGOs (nonprofits), corporations, associations, and governments that are working to increase digital literacy throughout our planet. More about Net Literacy is depicted below.
About Net Literacy
Digital exclusion is expensive! It diminishes the quality of people’s lives, reduces their competitiveness and life options, and closes them off from a world of information, entertainment, and communications. Net Literacy, an all-volunteer NGO (a 501(c)(3) nonprofit) whose board of directors is 50% comprised of students, respectfully believes that many of the best practices of how to effective approach increasing digital inclusion and digital literacy have already been established by many organizations in countries all over the world. The organization’s successes are a result of the support by nonprofits, government, businesses, and trade associations in the United States and around the world. Through its latest initiative, Digital Literacy “best practices,” digital inclusion and digital literacy best practices from around the world are aggregated in one location. Net Literacy and its hundreds of partners representing almost 250,000 organizations on five continents believe that we can learn from each other, celebrate our successes, and learn from our disappointments.
Net Literacy was founded by students in 2003 and has developed an integrated series of digital literacy programs: Senior Connects, Safe Connects, Computer Connects, Community Connects, the Net Literacy Alliance, Financial Connects, and Digital Literacy “best practices” website. Closing the digital divide is an international and collaborate effort. At Net Literacy, we believe that while each of us can make a difference, together, we can change the world!
Net Literacy’s programs have been used by many students and nonprofits (NGOs), and we are grateful for the support of so many because it has been a learning experience for us as student volunteers.
