Despite the growing importance of the Internet in American life, nearly one-third of Americans are not online. While there is no single solution to closing the this digital divide, increasing computer and Internet skills - known as digital literacy - is key to bringing more Americans online and opening doors to opportunity. In partnership with nine federal agencies, NTIA created DigitalLiteracy.gov to provide librarians, teachers, workforce trainers, and others a central location to share digital literacy content and best practices. Anyone can use the website to identify the skills needed for various jobs, locate suitable training, and search for employment. The website also provides a central location where grantees from NTIA's Broadband Technology Opportunities Program can upload and share digital literacy training materials with other practitioners and the general public, leveraging the value of these projects.
