Today we joined the wonderful Brio.ro and UiPath Foundation teams in a meaningful conversation on digital literacy and the opportunities nowadays pupils and students have for gaining employability skills (of the future).
We were represented in this endeavour by founder Digital Nation Paul Apostol. Among the ideas highlighted by us in the panel:
✅ During our experience with Profesori in Online in 2020, we understood that evolving towards digital literacy means in the first place, changing the mindset and lifestyle, the habits.
✅ Most digital literacy endeavours require a trained team, capable to be patient and supportive with users during the first week(s), also knows as “the painful week”.
✅ Digital literacy in a platform also means dexterity, longer time spent by users, experimentation. All of which competing now for users’ attention who are subjected to fragmentation of attention, cheap dopamine sources, their need for diversification and so on.
