Digital Skills: Embracing Digital Technology

Eleonora Gandolfi , King's College London

Create a plan for using digital tools to learn more about your favourite topics

On this course, you’ll learn about the digital technologies you can use to make your life, work and study easier.

From email and messaging to social media, you’ll discover digital tools for communicating and searching, and explore the creative possibilities offered by digital technology.

You’ll learn why and how to stay safe online, how to find trustworthy content, and the importance of how others perceive you online.

You’ll also learn how to use the internet to search and apply for jobs, and explore how online communities can help you in a variety of situations.

This course has been created for refugees, displaced people and the communities supporting them in the MENA (Middle East and Northern Africa) region who wish to take advantage of digital channels and devices to improve their lives, their job prospects and their opportunities to study.

It is aimed particularly at those who want to enter university and study any subject with a digital element, such as STEM, healthcare, social sciences, or arts and humanities.

The course has been created as part of the PADILEIA project, which aims to increase access to higher education and employment.

We recommend learners have a minimum of CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) A2 to get the most from this course.
