cover best practices digital literacyThis project, in partnership with HelpAge Canada, explored best practices for building digital literacy among older adults. HelpAge Canada is a national charity focused exclusively on supporting older persons in Canada and around the world. As part of their work, HelpAge Canada developed Dig-IT, a national digital literacy program for low-income older adults. The program partners with community organizations providing devices, data, training,
and IT support. The goal of this community engagement initiative was to understand the barriers and enablers to building digital literacy among older adults from multiple perspectives. Qualitative interviews were conducted with experts in the field, organizations providing digital literacy training and education to older adults, and volunteers and participants in the Dig-IT program.
