What are Digital Navigators?

Digital navigators provide individualized or small group assistance to Marylanders with information and resources on affordable internet access, appropriate device, digital skills, and provide basic technical support to enhance digital access and inclusion in Maryland. This assistance may be provided in person or by voice telephone, email, text, video chat, and other communication methods that work for the learner. 

Attendees will learn:

  • Fundamentals of digital inclusion
  • Locating Internet options for low-income community members
  • Identifying appropriate free or low-cost internet-capable devices
  • Resource navigation for government services and other self-guided skills classes

This training is a unique opportunity to enhance your skills and understand the vital role of a Digital Navigator. Whether assisting in libraries, schools, senior centers, or offering disciplinary services to various populations (including those with limited English proficiency), this training will equip attendees to support and empower your community through digital literacy.
