Improve your digital readiness

 

As educational technology becomes more sophisticated, more available and more attractive, learning can now take place outside of the time and physical limitations of a typical school day.[38] This provides new opportunities for attractive learning experiences outside of school, to connect with the rest of life, which parents can share with their children, as long as they are prepared to do so. There is a world of opportunities that offer ICT and online learning, enabled by the latest technology, that lifelong learner can explore in their daily lives.

To exploit this potential, parents need some cyber literacy.[39] It is not about being an expert, but about having a digital readiness that has 3 facets: (1) basic knowledge of digital technology and know-how, (2) ability to turn to social networks for help and guidance whenever necessary, and (3) confidence in one’s ability to find reliable learning tools and information on the Internet.[22] Acquiring a better digital disposition not only allows you to share more meaningful learning experiences at any time with your children, it also serves to find learning resources or information on how to help them with the school. A better understanding of the digital space not only promotes personal, family and intergenerational lifelong learning, it is also essential to keep up with a changing world.
