Opportunity

It is incumbent on KC Digital Drive and its partners to promote digital competency, engaging residents and making them aware of all that high-speed Internet has to offer. We must encourage digital literacy among area residents of every socioeconomic status, as well as promote responsible and appropriate use of the Internet.

Solution

The digital leadership network should:

  • Work with neighborhood leaders and community organizations to identify gaps in digital literacy and develop training programs to address them.
  • Work with schools and other organizations to develop training and mentoring programs for new computer users of all ages.
  • Work with neighborhoods, schools and community organizations to encourage productive use of the Internet.

Outcomes

KC Digital Drive will envision, outline and assist with the implementation of a Digital Inclusion Plan for the entire Kansas City metro.
