Stay Alert: Digital Skills Training in the New Normal

Join our DigiBlox virtual launch session to take a fresh view on Digital Education

4th June 6.30pm UK Time 

Covid19 has moved millions into digital work, remote and commute-free. We need to upskill young people, grads and adult learners but also prepare them to set up new online businesses and be alert to Fake News deluge that we are facing in cyberspace.

DigiBlox is our new Digital Skills Training Framework created as part of European Erasmus+ upskilling fund 

Our panel will ask the following questions:

  • What do we need to train people on digital media in 2020 – Tactics and ethics for Europeans
  • How DigiBlox can help in use of digital media with a critical eye? – Swimming with sharks
  • How to avoid cultural mishaps in European online communication?
  • What does it take to set up an online start-up or NGO in European countries?
  • How can you use this new course framework in your  own educational venue?
