Digital Transformations
DT acts as the very currency that drives a wider, more global access to knowledge. Whatever the paradigm, digital literacy carries with it the potential for far wider consequences on literacy, learning, employability, skilling and professional growth. The emphasis on developing skills in the workplace has predominantly been centered around or restricted to developing physical infrastructure or fine tuning specific skill sets. Developing information literacy and critical thinking skills through domain knowledge have often been poorly understood and not well recognized. Acknowledging this vacuum, multiple initiatives have been launched from academic institutions, corporate entities and government bodies to specifically address the digital divide that exists. While the standard digital literacy curriculum is developed by Government of India, the implementation modalities, differences in the infrastructural conditions, technical and language capabilities (to explain across English, Hindi and other Indian vernacular languages) across training partners and volunteers across various regions are expected to contribute to systematic differences especially in the quality of training received by citizens across centers.
