The Coalition for Digital Intelligence (CDI) has launched the DQ Global Standards Report 2019 – the world’s first attempt to define a global standard for digital literacy, skills and readiness across the education and technology sectors. This interesting information came to us from IT News Africa in their article, “Digital Intelligence launches global standard for digital literacy.”

The CDI is a platform created in association with the World Economic Forum (Forum) and formed jointly by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), IEEE Standards Association (IEEE), and DQ Institute.

The DQ Standards are overarching concepts that encompasses the competencies of digital literacy, skills, and readiness, with a systematic structure. It has a common language and taxonomy, with an adaptable framework that enables national and organizational adoption, customization and agile evolution to ensure that the framework remains educationally and technically up-to-date.

We like the idea of standards. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
