Five Super Helpful (and Free) Digital Literacy Resources

This is just a straight up “borrow” from Benton Institute for Broadband & Society’s newsletter, which is a retelling of bibliography of tools created by National Digital Inclusion Alliance

The National Digital Inclusion Alliance compiled a sampling of free, online digital literacy resources that demonstrate the diversity of curricula and methods that can be explored to help determine what works best for your community:

  • Techboomers.com: a free educational website that teaches older adults and inexperienced internet users with basic computer skills about websites.
  • DigitalLearn.org: a “one-stop-shop” for computer and technology training for computer basics, hardware, software, and applications as well as basic job search resources.
  • GCFLearnFree.org: a website with free resources and tools for learners to acquire necessary skills for 21st-century life.
  • Mozilla Foundation: free and open-source tools and resources for facilitators to lead sessions on how to read, write and participate on the web.
  • Google for Education, Applied Digital Skills: well-organized curriculum for teachers covering over 1,000 topics.
