Digital Literacy is the ability to find information and communicate with others using various digital platforms. Digital Literacy is evaluated by grammar, composition, typing skills, producing text, images, audio, and designs.
In a technology-driven world, children in underserved communities who lack access to computers are prevented from accessing opportunities over digital platforms.
Households in underserved communities often lack reliable internet access. According to the Pew Research Center(2018), Roughly one-third of households with children ages 6 to 17 and whose annual income falls below $30,000 a year do not have a high-speed internet connection at home.
Since the pandemic, this digital divide has only increased, furthering the education equity gap as schoolwork and homework transitioned exclusively to online platforms. With kids returning back to in-person school these divides are more apparent in low literacy rates.
By partnering with San Francisco City Impact's after-school program City Kids in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. The Creative Destination is creating a Creative Destination Technology Lab. City Kids has reliable Wifi but lacks updated laptops for the kids. Many of the desktops need to be updated to easily portable and interactive laptops for kids.
Our goal is to provide 30 new laptops, new tables, new chairs, and new artwork for the Creative Destination space.
By donating to the QGiv code, your donation will immediately be sent to a fund allocated for The Creative Destination Technology space.
