Mark Smith speaks at Internetdagarna in track on Schools, Digital skills and Digital literacy
In various sessions at Internetdagarna 2018, organised by Internetstiftelsen i Sverige (IIS), there will be discussions on the future of learning, the technological transformation of society and what we really mean by digital literacy and skills. On the opening day Monday 19 november one of the tracks covers “What are the pupils learning as digitalisation brings change to education in schools”.
Can digital competence make the school more meaningful in underserved areas?
The contribution by Inicio and Mark Smith to this track is the work on providing knowledge and mentoring to both schools and community members, especially in underserved areas. Being introduced to how digital technology can be used to explore your talent and realise a dream or ambition provides a new set of skills and empowers people.

Sharing stuff in the Kista Mentorspace
Calling students (and others) to get components in return for constructive insights. We grew out of our storage space for keeping electronic components and want to make use of them by sharing.
So please come and see us in Kista Mentorspace on 1 October and as a favour we ask you in return to share your thoughts about what you are missing to fulfill your education or project.
What would you like to have? What would make you grow and improve your skills? What does the Mentorspace provide you with and how could you contribute?
Come and get inspiration for your projects and fill your bag of electronics. You will be invited to an event in December where you can display your project and you have a chance to win more stuff.
