Sacramento, CA, April 29, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The time has come to introduce a platform, armed with an effective methodology that will begin closure of the Digital Divide. The source of this wound that has become a gap in our worldwide population and between generations, is Digital Literacy.
A Presidential Proclamation stated, “Information presented by an immense array of online resources, has challenged our long-held perceptions of information management. Rather than merely possessing data, we must also learn the skills necessary to acquire, collate, and evaluate information for any situation. This new type of literacy also requires competency with communication technologies, including computers and mobile devices that can help in our day-to-day decision making.” (1)
During the entire digital era, attempts at addressing Digital Literacy has only been made by instructional applications (apps) on a device, then there are videos on YouTube or a third-party PDF manual for download, but normally the task of instruction in learning to use new technology (gaining digital literacy) falls to a friend, family member or some organization of volunteers.
Obviously, at the pace digital evolution has maintained their efforts, though admirable, are an exercise in futility. Because with each product introduction from new technology, more and more members of society fall behind in the Literacy to truly benefit from it.
Master Level High-Tech Device Webinars provides instruction & assistance for individuals learning to use high tech devices that connect to the internet. This service is offered by employing a webinar methodology which has proven to be both easily accessible and effective allowing face-to-face communication. The service is designed to address digital literacy as it pertains to high-tech devices such as computers, laptops, smartphones, tablets and gaming consoles. The purpose of this campaign is to solicit funding for this unique venture and begin a closure of the digital divide between those that have yet to acquire digital literacy and the tech-savvy.
