Building a Digital Literacy Program that Nurtures Future-Ready Students

Nearly every student and teacher is engaging in some level of digital learning, but that doesn’t mean everyone is equipped with the digital skills for the future. Many education leaders are ready to start taking a closer look at how they deploy digital literacy programs to students.

To help with planning for these, we have updated our in-depth guide that offers a sound process we have refined through years of working with educators embarking on this quest. The process spans four phases:


  1. Articulate the program’s vision.
  2. Build an implementation model.
  3. Scope a framework for alignment.
  4. Engage teachers throughout the program launch and beyond.

The result of this effort is an equitable and effective digital literacy program, so let’s get started.

"Digital literacy is not just another program in a long list of them; it is the program. At its core, this program aims to transform the ways students learn by empowering them with technology skills to succeed in their future."
