Increasing digital confidence in young people

in News

The Foundation has partnered with two global leaders in digital intelligence and technology respectively to give young Australians and New Zealanders the skills to thrive in a digital world.

With international digital intelligence think-tank, the DQ Institute and support from global professional services company, Accenture, the Foundation will launch later this year a high quality educational and teaching program, the recharged eSmart Digital Licence.

This re-envisaged version of the original eSmart Digital Licence offers an exciting, gamified learning experience for students to explore an interactive story world and engage with learning material, relatable scenarios and guided reflections of their own experiences with technology, in the interests of building digital intelligence.

Students are immersed in a world of stories, while completing milestones and earning the badges they need to receive their Digital Licence.

Supporting students aged 11-14, this world-first global collaboration will help them develop critical knowledge and skills to thrive in the digital world.

Part of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s broader eSmart framework, the eSmart Digital Licence offers the world’s first global standards for digital literacy, digital skills, and digital readiness.

The Foundation will draw on its deep understanding of schools across Australia to include those which experience digital disadvantage despite being in regions which are statistically characterised as relatively advantaged.

With the project reaching students in New Zealand, the Foundation is working alongside key partners there and surrounding regions.
