Computer, digital literacy and Internet skills curricula

Technology and Learning colleagues,

For many years I have been collecting, updating and making available online a large list of mostly free resources, especially websites, for a range of adult literacy/basic education/English language teaching. It is called The Literacy List and you will find it at In responding to an email request today from a colleague here who was looking for computer/digital literacy and Internet skills resources, especially free ones, I updated the web page with these resources. If you are looking for adult basic education-focused computer and digital literacy assessments, curricula, and lessons and other resources to teach them, you might find the links on this page particularly useful.

I welcome your comments here about that webpage. Also, if you know of an excellent resource that you think I should add to the webpage, please let me know -- here or by email. Thanks.

Hi David and all, 

The links are no longer working - what are the updated ones?

I'd love to have access to curricula programs are using that blend digital lit and ESOL. All levels would be appreciated, and ones that use phones, smart or otherwise too. Programs I work with are asking.

Much appreciated!

Hi Diana,

Comcast no longer hosts webpages for its subscribers so I have moved the Literacy List to a Google Document.

Below are some links from the main menu. Some pages are kept up to date; others are not. Check the last update date at the bottom of each page. ESOL/ESL web pages are fairly up-to-date and will be found under "Websites for Teachers and Learners".

On the following linked pages an apple and books icon tutorial.jpg indicates a website with instruction for students as well as teachers.
