Needs Assessment For An Electronic Infrastructure for the Canadian Literacy Community (1996)

The National Literacy Secretariat (NLS) asked Consulting and Audit Canada (CAC) to conduct this needs assessment for an electronic infrastructure for literacy in Canada. The assessment focusses particularly on the type of infrastructure that is needed to help practitioners and literacy organizations to communicate with each other and with those who support them, and to provide practitioners and literacy organizations with ready access to the information they require to do a better job.

Section 2 of the report establishes the communications and information needs of practitioners and literacy organizations in general terms and indicates how these needs vary among those serving different groups of learners. Section 3 then presents a brief outline of the current level of electronic support. This is followed, in Section 4, by an analysis of some of the current obstacles to the development of better communications and information sharing and, by extension, to the development of an electronic infrastructure. Section 5 then discusses a number of opportunities in the areas of technology, partnering and funding that might help to remove some of these obstacles. Section 6 lays out some strategic issues identified by literacy practitioners. Finally, Section 7 summarizes the general findings, outlines a recommended strategy and proposes an action plan.
