The project seeks the design, discussion and implementation of a digital literacy curriculum for young people from 13 to 20 years of age with an intercultural and gender approach.
It arises from the identification of needs and the evaluation of a critical context for education in Bolivia. According to a recent report prepared by UNICEF and the World Bank, due to the impacts of the pandemic, Latin America could go back 10 years in learning levels, with a 12% reduction in the future income of school-age generations, and the observation of greater difficulties in entering higher education and the labor market. The Bolivian educational system is among the most affected, with one of the highest rates of school closures in the region in the period of health measures due to COVID-19.
Likewise, it seeks to influence the design of an inclusion and digital talent program with an intercultural and gender approach for the population aged 13 to 35 that can be promoted and implemented by the Ministry of Education, municipalities, universities and civil society in Bolivia. . This program will be the result of joint work with these entities in three specific actions: The survey of quantitative and qualitative information on the levels of penetration and skills of digital technologies in urban, rural and indigenous municipalities; the elaboration of a standard for digital literacy and talent that can be applied by different state, educational and civil society entities. Lastly, the organization of multisectoral work groups and discussions for the socialization, validation and appropriation of the generated instruments.
