While it’s important for the young generation to be equipped with digital skills in preparation for working life, it appears that not many of them truly are. Various studies done around the world have shown that the young generation have either a very elementary level of digital abilities, or they have not yet fully grasped the skills or concepts required to take them forward.
With the acceleration of new technologies, from smartphones, big data and social media to the internet of things, artificial intelligence and robotics, this partnership between ICDL and ANAFE is more important than ever, for every individual, organization and society to seize all the opportunities of the digital world.
