Unlocking the Benefits of Digital Skills for All Students

With the world becoming increasingly digital, it is more important than ever for students to understand and be able to use the technology that surrounds them. The need for basic digital skills (BSD) is no longer a nice-to-have; it’s a must-have.

BSD can open doors for students and empower them with knowledge and skills that will help them succeed personally and professionally.


Approach One: Baseline + Experience for All Students

Just like we require our students to learn certain languages or science fundamentals, having a baseline understanding of technology should also be mandatory. We can’t let our students opt out of this part of their education – they can’t ignore what is happening in their world!

BSD provides students with the foundation they need to interact with technology confidently and competently. It gives them the tools to become lifelong learners who are not afraid to tackle new technologies as they come along.

Approach Two: The Future Is Now!

The evolution of technology has changed so much about how we live, work, play, communicate, and even think. Technology permeates almost every aspect of life today, so teaching our students BSD isn’t just about preparing them for future jobs or tasks – it’s about equipping them with skills that are applicable now!

From communication platforms such as Skype or Zoom to search engines such as Google or Bing, having a good understanding of digital skills can give your students access to information and opportunities that may have been unavailable just a few years ago.

Teaching your students BSD can also foster creativity and collaboration among peers who may have different levels of experience when it comes to technology.

BSD is critical today because it provides our students with the knowledge and skills needed to engage in an increasingly digital landscape.

By providing our students with a baseline understanding of technology plus experience using various tools available, we can equip them with the confidence necessary to make informed decisions about their future careers and take advantage of opportunities that may come their way.

With great power comes great responsibility – by teaching our students about BSD today, we are setting them up for success tomorrow!
