Digital Skills for Life from ICANDO.ie

Below is a link to an article published on Silicon Republic and in the Irish Independent. I'm a big believer that digital literacy is as vital now as the so-called three R's: "reading, writing and arithmetic". If we are going to have a Smart Economy, we have to have smart people. The Digital Media Forum, which I chair, has teamed up with I-CANDO.ie to launch a new Digital Skills Programme - which will help anyone, anywhere learn the basics in digital skills. They can do it online if they want at www.i-cando.ie.

So how can someone who is digitally unskilled go online and do a course, I hear you ask? Well, they can ask someone to help them buy it online or they can ring 1850 88 5858 and get talked through the process. Once there in, the course is very simple to use. Alternatively, they can attend a nearby training course in a classroom.

Here's the link to the article:
