Generation ZD Digital Literacy Program

Page history last edited by Marisa 9 years, 1 month ago

About Our Project:

 

ZeroDivide’s Generation ZD Digital Literacy Program proposes a major regional training and broadband access program for low-income youth in communities across several Western states that will encourage the development of a new generation of broadband users.  The project plans to enhance broadband services and outreach in Humboldt and San Benito counties and San Juan Bautista, California; Salt Lake City, Utah; Maui County, Hawaii; King, Snohomish, Skagit Island and Pierce counties, Washington; Multnomah and Washington counties and Portland, Oregon; and Santa Fe, New Mexico.  It will also provide sustainable skills training, skillsharing, and workforce development programs for the North Coast region of California, including for youth from the Native American Table Bluff Wiyot Tribe, Karuk Tribe, and Hoopa Valley Tribe.

 

 

This project is funded through a two-year grant of$1,384,242 from the U.S Department of Commerce’s Broadband Technology Opportunities Program.

 


 

Our Mission:

 

The Generation ZD Digital Literacy Program also proposes to:

 

  • Encourage broadband subscribership and train as many as 146,000 residents over the life of the project, offering approximately 8.7 million hours of teacher-led training, including an average of 60 hours of teacherled digital media arts production training for each user.
  • Measure subscribership increases, technology adoption, and the resulting impacts on broadband usage in the targeted communities using an existing methodology.
  • Develop replicable best practices in digital media technology education in six Western states.
