DLC Digital Literacy
01 Digital Literacy
In today’s world, we live, learn, communicate and work through digital technologies. The key to economic development is to bridge the digital divide and equip everyone with the necessary skills to use the internet meaningfully; and to find, evaluate and share content efficiently. The Global DLC Social Impact Community underlines the importance of digital literacy in facilitating educational and professional opportunities for growth. The Community works with NGOs committed to the cause of getting all to embrace technology as an invaluable learning tool from infancy through adulthood.
