Digital Literacy Today

The pandemic abruptly accelerated the importance of technology in our ordinary daily lives, particularly for those least inclined to use online tools partly due to a lack of basic technology education. It became clear that marginalized communities are woefully unprepared for a more robust digital future, and that we must take immediate action to create new pathways for success. Communities require Web3 fundamental education to be prepared for the world of new technologies.

The Aland You Web3 Digital Literacy Badge Program

The Aland You online Web3 Digital Literacy Program is designed to offer foundational knowledge of artificial intelligence, metaverse, cryptocurrencies, NFTs and other technologies that impact jobs, education, career, health, finances, and more.

The program is for students and adults interested in exploring a technology career path, new job opportunities or improved technology skills. Participants earn a virtual badge to validate their fundamental knowledge of Web3 technologies.

Our easy-to-understand Badge Program is narrated by Susan Gonzales and includes the following:
