A webinar with the creators of the Broadband Adoption Toolkit discussing how to implement strategies for building digitally inclusive communities.

Increasing access and use of information technologies is essential for communities and individuals. Libraries, local government, community-based organizations and businesses are creating a variety of solutions. Building a digitally inclusive community requires multiple strategies, collaborations and creativity. Some digital inclusion strategies are referred to as “broadband adoption” which includes technology training, broadband awareness, low cost internet service and low cost home computers. NTIA is expected to release a Broadband Adoption Toolkit in May 2013. Join us for a conversation with the creators of the Broadband Adoption Toolkit to discuss what they learned and how the broadband adoption pieces fit together.

Presented by:

*Laura Breeden, Team Leader, BTOP Program at the U.S. Department of Commerce, NTIA

*John Horrigan, Vice President and Director, Media Technology Institute at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies

*Angela Siefer, Digital Inclusion Program Manager at OCLC

To help you get the most out of this webinar, we are also inviting representatives of the projects highlighted in the NTIA Broadband Adoption Toolkit to participate in the chat.
