Councillor Michelle Holland (Ward 35 Scarborough Southwest), the City of Toronto’s Advocate for the Innovation Economy, will be joined by Vickery Bowles, City Librarian at Toronto Public Library, and event partners to launch Digital Literacy Day. A Grade 8 Toronto District School Board (TDSB) student will also speak at the launch which will be held May 31 from 10 to 11:30 am at Toronto Reference Library Atrium, 789 Yonge St.
The event will showcase technologies from Toronto Public Library’s Digital Innovation Hubs including virtual reality and robotics demonstrations alongside 3D printers and displays from a selection of the event partners including Ryerson University, TDSB, Ontario Science Centre and STEAMLabs.
Toronto is celebrating its first Digital Literacy Day on May 31 with more than 110 free events and workshops for all ages. This day is the result of the City of Toronto and the Toronto Public Library collaborating with a diverse group of more than 35 local companies and organizations to produce and host digital literacy-themed events throughout the city.
