In order to provide users with training in a comprehensive set of digital literacy skills, JobScout lessons have been drafted to comply with the California Digital Literacy Standards. The California Digital Literacy Standards were developed by a state committee to provide a framework for digital literacy programs conducted by California’s state agencies. Below is a table mapping JobScout’s lessons against these elements.
