Empowering the Next Generation with Essential Digital Skills
At Astrolabe Academy, our recent weekly group session was nothing short of a digital revelation for our teen participants! Guided by a commitment to learner-centered education, the session was a vibrant exploration of digital skills crucial for success in the modern world.
A Dive into Document Formatting We kicked off the session with a focus on document and presentation formatting. Tailoring this segment to be as engaging as possible, we unearthed the significance of professionalism and attention to detail in creating compelling and effective documents and presentations. We talked about the usefulness of having good keyboard skills as well and how beneficial it would be to spend some time getting good at this using some of the free tools on the internet. Some tools we recommend for this are: https://www.typingclub.com/, and https://www.typinggames.zone/games/tag/adults
Coding: The Universal Digital Language A stimulating discussion on coding languages followed. Unpacking the universal applicability of coding skills, we delved into how coding extends beyond programming, fostering problem-solving skills, logical thinking, and creativity across various disciplines. There are many resources available to learn coding including https://www.codecademy.com/, and https://www.khanacademy.org/hourofcode.

Our students were remarkably enthusiastic, expressing interest in a specialized program solely dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of digital marketing.
