The UNESCO-Pearson Initiative for Literacy is launching its Guidelines for Designing Inclusive Digital Solutions and Developing Digital Skills on the occasion of International Literacy Day, which this year examines integrated approaches to literacy and skills development.In an increasingly digitised world, people need digital and literacy skills to work, live, learn and communicate productively. Without these skills, people face marginalisation not only in the physical world but in digital realms as well. Fortunately, digital exclusion is avoidable.
Purposefully designed solutions can help people—even those with very low literacy levels and nascent technology skills—navigate digital spaces and benefit from relevant applications, such as those that connect users to health services, support refugees or help farmers improve productivity.
