ICDL Americas participated on the virtual Caribbean Digital Skills Symposium last April 7th and 8th. The event, organised by Regional Consultant Jenelle Ross-McIntyre, had the goal of exploring the potentials of digital skills for regional development.
Digital skills are defined as the ability to use digital devices, communication applications, and networks to access and manage information. It allows for the effective creation and dissemination of digital content, accessibility to online communication and collaboration platforms, and facilitates social and professional engagements.
Digital technologies are quickly shaping all aspects of our lives. Digital literacy and competence are no longer optional, but are critical to effective communication, education and employability.
Understanding the evolution of digitalisation and the opportunities it presents for future development is a priority not just for governments and policy makers, but educators, employers and citizens at large. This 2-day event aims to promote greater insight into the importance of Digital Skills for Development within the Caribbean as a region, highlighting current and future opportunities for Education and Workforce enhancement.
The event was transmitted via Zoom. Find the recording of each topic in the next links:
