GTDI

Digital Community

Gateway to Digital Inclusion (GTDI) is designed to help build a bridge between people and the online world. The mobile app is an online resource, a place for self-advocates, job seekers, employers, caregivers, and families. We offer support and resources, the ability to connect and engage with one another, all the while practicing digital literacy skills.

MOBILE APP

Gateway To Digital Inclusion

In celebration of our newly launched Gateway To Digital Inclusion (GTDI) app, our mobile app is designed to help build your digital literacy skills such as finding, understanding, creating and communicating information through digital platforms. The app offers the ability to use technology to create and share text, pictures, videos and designs online in a responsible way. Gateway to Digital Inclusion helps you gain basic skills and literacy so that you can engage in the online community and keep up with the digitized world. Watch the “Why Does Digital Literacy Matter” video below to learn more about our new app!
