Friday September 8 is UNESCO International Literacy Day. The theme for 2017 is “literacy in a digital world.”
According to the UNESCO ILD website, the day’s “overall aim [is] to look at what kind of literacy skills people need to navigate increasingly digitally-mediated societies, and to explore effective literacy policies and programmes that can leverage the opportunities that the digital world provides.”
Visit the ILD website for the agenda of the international conference on literacy in a digital world, taking place in Paris on September 8. The conference will be live streamed.
