Digital Literacy During COVID-19

During this COVID-19 emergency, we’ve become very dependent on technology (even more than we already were) to help us do our jobs, find reliable information, or just to keep essential connections with family and loved ones. Unfortunately not everyone has the skills or resources needed to navigate this digital landscape. Hopefully some of these tools can help you and/or someone you know during this time.
