Arc Skills, a global skills provider for schools, universities and corporates, took first of its kind initiative to generate awareness to the group of underprivileged girls, aged between 8 – 14 years, from Sparsh NGO on digital literacy.
The sole aim of the workshop was to enable the girls to understand how to navigate through the digital content & social media, without compromising their safety.
The rising addiction of internet among children has become a concern for parents and the society at large.
Children are more likely to believe the content available on the internet to be true and factual, without actual awareness.
Several reports have appeared on vulnerabilities among children playing games online namely ‘Blue whale’, that ended their lives.
Digital literacy has become the need of the hour, not only to educate children belonging to the underprivileged section, but saving them from exploitation.
Kakul Misra, COO, Arc Skills while commenting on the initiative said, “We at Arc skills are committed to create an impact in the society through preparing our children on new age skills.
And, Digital Literacy plays an essential part in our journey.
Children are avid media consumers as any other group, but they are not the wise consumers.
