Thursday - 5/19/2011, 6:36pm EDT

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration is partnering with nine federal agencies for a new online initiative designed to boost digital literacy among Americans. The new DigitalLiteracy.gov is designed to centralize resources for teaching computer and Internet skills, so they can be easily deployed to public libraries and other learning sites across the country. NTIA says the target audience is the 28 percent of Americans who currently don't use the internet at all.
