The World of Digital Navigation

Posted on January 12, 2024 by Melissa Hirstein, Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading
When you get the opportunity to continue to learn and grow, you take it! That is why I was so excited to learn about digital navigation. During training, I was in awe of the realization of what some of our team members have been working on for a while. The world of digital navigation has brought yet another piece of happiness to my cup that overflows.

Digital Navigators are trusted guides that assist community members in internet adoption and the use of computing devices. Digital navigation services include ongoing assistance with affordable internet access, device acquisition, technical skills, and application support.

The reality of being a Digital Navigator is the smile that is forever etched in the brain of the mom, dad, or family member who realizes they have qualified and are one step closer to saving $30 a month on their internet service. But wait…now let’s work with some amazing community partners to see if we can get you or your child a computer. Oh, you would like to learn more about how to use technology? We would love to help you get set up with some great technology training.

Digital navigation is another way to share and engage in our communities. A way for us to give back and help families save and grow.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” — Barack Obama
