Council Overview

The Global Digital Literacy Council represents an effort to organize a global delegation of key stakeholders-including but not limited to corporate executives, government officials, academicians and industry luminaries-in the definition and positioning of digital literacy standards and validated delivery systems.

The council meets annually to drive the development of Internet and Computing Core Certification Standards (IC³), and will undertake such other initiatives as are deemed relevant and important to the definition and delivery of global digital literacy programs.

The regular meeting schedule is a function of the rolling Internet and Computing Core Certification exam development cycle, and has been established to provide courseware developers sufficient lead time to produce training materials that map to updated exam objectives.

In the intervening months the council will undertake initiatives such as the development of a white paper and related presentations and requirements documents on global digital literacy standards, delivery mechanisms and reporting systems.
