Technology Literacy Collaborative
The Technology Literacy Collaborative (TLC) is a support network for Community Technology Center providers and others concerned about ensuring basic technology skills. The TLC developed from the expansion of the South Minneapolis Technical Literacy Collaboration (SMTLC) established in 2006 with support from the MSNet Fund of the Minneapolis Foundation. Conveners of the original south Minneapolis group were Project for Pride in Living, Minneapolis Public Library (now Hennepin County Library), and Waite House of Pillsbury United Communities. The goal of the group was the building of a network to share information, resources, and best practices. With limited staff and high public demand for digital literacy skills, it was of benefit to network with others facing the same issues.
