About to begin. The NDIA's website includes this definition:  *Digital
Inclusion refers to the activities necessary to ensure that all individuals
and communities, including the most disadvantaged, have access to and use
of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).  This includes 5
elements: 1) affordable, robust broadband internet service; 2)
internet-enabled devices that meet the needs of the user; 3) access to
digital literacy training; 4) quality technical support; and 5)
applications and online content designed to enable and encourage
self-sufficiency, participation and collaboration. Digital Inclusion must
evolve as technology advances. Digital Inclusion requires intentional
strategies and investments to reduce and eliminate historical,
institutional and structural barriers to access and use technology.*
