Literacy in a digital world is this year’s theme for International Literacy Day, celebrated each year on September 8.
The digital world is opening up opportunities for people at home, at work, and in their community. The pace of change has been rapid. The internet has become our major source of information and connection in only a decade or so.
We often view our photos only on electronic devices. We can check all the holdings in the NWT public library system online, and read books without paper. Through YouTube we learn how to fix drywall cracks, change a washer in a leaky tap and teach someone how to ride a bike.
