Proposed Framework for Digitally Inclusive Communities. Final Report
Institute of Museum and Library Services
Digital inclusion is the ability of individuals and groups to access and use information and communication technologies. Not all members of a community benefit equally, and some communities have been left out altogether. This paper is a guide for fostering digital inclusion throughout the United States so that everyone can take advantage of digital technologies. The Framework is structured around a vision for the future, principles that define digital inclusion, goals to make digital inclusion a reality, and sample strategies for achieving the goals. Specific strategies and implementing activities may vary from one community to another. A bibliography is included. Appended are: (1) Partner information; (2) Partner team members; and (3) Summary of research on digital inclusion. (Contains 2 figures and 4 footnotes.)
