Mobile Information Literacy Curriculum

The Mobile Information Literacy Curriculum is a growing collection of training materials designed to build information literacies for the millions of people worldwide coming online every month via a mobile phone. Most information and digital literacy curricula were designed for a PC age, and public and private organizations around the world have used these curricula to help newcomers use computers and the internet effectively and safely. The better curricula address not only skills, but also concepts and attitudes. The central question for this project is: what are the relevant skills, concepts, and attitudes for people using mobiles, not PCs, to access the internet?
