The 21stdigiskillz initiative webinar
21st digiskillz proudly presents international webinar: Theme: Bridging the gap of digital divide by integrating the 21st century learning skills

 

We live in a connected world with unprecedented access to a vast arrays of digital information and experiences. The use of digital technology continues to transform how we live and work. The on-going adoption of new advances in technology has become more essential to living and working in the 21st century.

In today’s globalized knowledge-based economy, individuals increasingly need skills not only to intelligently consume information and ideas, but also to design and create new information and ideas using digital technologies. Using a broad palette of digital technologies we can engage with ideas in new and innovative ways that were not possible before now. In addition, through using these digital technologies, we can connect with and build relationships with a wider network of people.

This enables us to understand our world in a deeper way through engaging with a multitude of perspectives. Because it is only by engaging with and being challenged by others that we begin to truly understand ourselves and the world we live in. Given the extensive use, the young people, even adults make use of digital technologies in their world in and outside of the classrooms. We need to ensure that they can understand and use these technologies in powerful ways to learn and make sense of the world they live in. While digital technologies are becoming increasingly common in classrooms and learning environments, they are often used to present or consume information rather than to transform learning experiences.

The primary objective of the 21st digiskillz int'l  is to design an innovative learning experiences so that young people, women, girls, men, boys, schools and communities  will have an enthusiastic attitude, technological drive, thinking out of box to develops the future ready skills not only to evaluate and analyze information and ideas, but also to design and create a new information and ideas using a wide range of digital technologies.

Hello Uche,
I hope you are doing great and well.

Congratulations for a remarkable and successful launch of your project. It was indeed a massive one. Huge.
Bringing people from 45 countries across the globe for such an event is no mean fit, especially in a place like Africa where network woes are a regular constant.
Giving participants, speakers and guests certificates is truly cool.
All the very best. Keep impacting as we wait to read more updates.
All the very best,
