What is digital literacy? Simply put, it means having the skills needed to use a computer and the internet in daily life, employment, health and education. It’s important for us all to build our digital literacy skills, so that we can communicate with family and friends, find information, interact with our doctors, take classes, find jobs, be successful at work, and so much more!

How do I know if I have the skills I need? The easiest way is to try out the Northstar Digital Literacy Assessment. It’s like a simple online quiz to see how much you already know and what you need to learn. Once you know what you want to learn, there are online courses available to help you grow your skills. Becoming a Northstar Learner allows you to gain valuable tech skills and record your achievements.

When you sign up for a learner account, you will have your own personal dashboard to keep track of what you learn and the online classes you take.
