Fast Forward Hull
Digital 20/20 supported the adaption and onward development of three linked e-learning resources, focused on literacy, numeracy and employability skills, which were created by The Sheffield College. The resources combine hard-copy workbooks with computer-based learning.
A guide to unzipping the application has been provided to accompany the resource. This is available here.
The Fast Forward resources are now being expanded for all four South Yorkshire sub-regions as part of the Making IT Personal – Joining the DOTS project.
Next Generation User Skills Report
The Next Generation User Skills Report was jointly commissioned by Digital 20/20, the regional digital skills partnership for Yorkshire and Humber, and the Scottish Qualifications Authority.
It focused on the vision for ICT user skills in 2013 – referenced as ‘Next Generation User Skills’ – taking account of:
- Skills that all employers will need, which they may not currently recognise – including web presence, information productivity, market research, infrastructure management.
- Skills that people (especially young people) will already have, but which may not be recognised or accredited.
- Generic occupational skills that people will need – such as remote working, online communication, information research, lifelong learning and, not least, management of their digital environment.
- Essential skills for living and learning in a digital age – including communication, accessing public services and underpinning personal econfidence.
