ABC Life Literacy

About

ABC Connect for Learning is a digital literacy program that offers free resources to those looking to improve their digital skills. Whether you’re just getting started with the Internet or looking to learn about new technology, ABC Connect for Learning offers something for everyone.

Our free resources are available for:

  • Learners to use on their own
  • Literacy practitioners running workshops

Learners and literacy practitioners can also access the ABC Skills Hub online learning platform. The ABC Skills Hub includes teacher and organizational portals, where practitioners can set up virtual classrooms for learners, and where organizations can keep track of multiple teachers and groups of learners across a variety of courses.

Literacy practitioners can bring these digital literacy resources to their community by hosting a workshop. Workshops can be held virtually or in person. You can choose to run as many workshops as you’d like.

Simply sign up to host a workshop and you’ll be connected with your regional representative to get started.

When literacy practitioners sign up for a workshop, they’ll receive free access to:

  • Printed lesson plans
  • Online facilitator training
  • Custom support from your regional representative

Practitioners can also access an honorarium of $50 per workshop run (upon the completion of learner evaluations.)

Special thanks to Youth Empowering Parents for collaborating on the development of resources and helping to bring the program to underserved communities across Canada.
