U.S. Department of Commerce launched DigitalLiteracy.gov
Today the U.S. Department of Commerce launched DigitalLiteracy.gov http://www.digitalliteracy.gov/, a gateway to materials, research, online learning tools and more to help librarians and educators access and share materials to use when training learners of all ages on topics such as information literacy, computer skills, digital literacies and more.
The Dept. of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) created the portal in partnership with nine federal agencies to provide librarians, teachers, workforce trainers and others a central location to share digital literacy content and practices.
Individuals are welcome to visit the site to find resources, upload their own and/or connect with others who are offering training on these topics. Visit http://www.digitalliteracy.gov/ to access the resource, or read more
