About PLA’s Partnership With AT&T
Community members come into public libraries every day, hoping to complete life tasks many of us take for granted, but sometimes lacking the basic computer skills needed to accomplish them. PLA offers digital literacy programs to help you help patrons reach their goals. A recent PLA collaboration with AT&T has added both content and local partnership opportunities to encourage public libraries and other community partners to promote and teach digital skills together using the DigitalLearn platform!
With support from AT&T, PLA has been able to add and update 13 online DigitalLearn courses, and develop 8 new complete training packages. Materials are available in both English and Spanish. All DigitalLearn materials are free to use.
PLA Digital Literacy Workshop Incentive, supported by AT&T is designed to support library adoption of the PLA DigitalLearn online courses and training materials developed with support from AT&T, freely available at DigitalLearn.org. Over 150 libraries were recently selected to take part in the program. They will use the funds to support and promote use of DigitalLearn in their communities as we work together to build digital skills and narrow the digital divide.
