Internetdagarna
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.
