ICDL Africa participated in Tanzania’s 3rd ICT Summit, which took place in early September in the capital, Dar es Salaam. Hosted by the Institute of Finance Management, the event was attended by local and international speakers from academia and industry.

ICDL Africa was represented by General Manager, Etinick Mutinda, and Edwin Masanta. Etinick made a presentation on ICDL Foundation’s ‘Fallacy of the Digital Native’ position paper, highlighting the importance of providing digital skills to young people and avoiding the myth that young people intuitively know how to use digital technologies. The presentation affirmed the importance of ensuring that digital skills development should be structured, formal and measurable against an internationally recognised standard.
