Global Digital Literacy Council Charter

The purpose of the Global Digital Literacy Council is to define and serve as a credible and authoritative voice on issues driving the development of global digital literacy standards and systems.

The council oversees and guides the development of digital literacy standards, and ensures that such standards are market-driven and continue to map to Internet and computing technology skill and competency requirements.

Specifically, the council will be responsible for ensuring that global digital literacy standards and delivery methodologies and reporting systems align with market (corporate, educational, workforce development/government, and individual) expectations of computing literacy.

The council will pursue this charter by engaging in the following activities:

  • Representation of key geographic and industry stakeholders in the definition and development of digital literacy programs and practices
  • Review and development of Internet and Computing Core Certification standards
  • Definition and positioning of global digital literacy issues such as standards delivery methodologies and reporting systems
