    Skill building for an inclusive future

    • To deliver digital inclusion, we must go beyond the device and high-speed broadband to ensure we’re creating a full solution with lasting benefits. “Digital literacy is an additional barrier to adoption by certain communities, both in developed and developing markets. In lower income economies, only 32% of the population has basic digital skills (i.e. defined as the ability to copy or move a file or send e mails)” (World Economic Forum 2020).

    • To support individuals in learning digital literacy skills needed to thrive in a global society, Dell Technologies has partnered with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) to develop GetDigitalSkills.org where students, teachers, and parents can take a 30-minute customized journey to boost their skills, then continue to explore and develop with additional resources.
