Building Digital Communities: A framework for action
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. Building Digital Communities: A framework for action is a resource 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.
