What is Digital Inclusion?
Digital Inclusion refers to the activities necessary to ensure that all individuals and communities, including the most disadvantaged, have access to and use of Information and Communication Technologies.
Digital Inclusion can look like:
- Helping a neighbor set up their email account
- Public access technology in safe facilities, with adequate levels of privacy,
security, and accessibility for people with disabilities.
- Learning how to work on Google Drive or Microsoft Suites
- Public libraries offering free wireless services, and digital E-books and databases
- Employers offering trainings and assistance with technology
- Patient-centered designs that allow patients to easily access to online health information systems and medical records
- Coordination between schools, libraries, and community-based technology
centers to maximize delivery of in-school and out-of-school student learning tools
