The Digital Citizen programme was launched at Nu Vision High School in Kigali, Rwanda by ICDL Africa. ICDL trainers and students were joined by the school’s Principal, Ndumiso Dube, ICDL Coordinator, Apollo Ssempebwa, and representatives of ICDL Africa including General Manager, Etinick Mutinda, and Rwanda Country Manager, Solange Umulisa.
The Digital Citizen programme is designed for complete beginners and will be offered as a mandatory course to high school students in their first year of study. It will form a foundation to progress on to ICDL certification in later studies. The school Principal, Ndumiso Dube, welcomed ICDL Africa’s choice of Nu Vision School as pioneers of the programme, and encouraged his students to embrace digital literacy. Etinick Mutinda also addressed the students and presented them with learning materials for the programme.
