Description of the video (125 characters max.):

“Why digital skills Matter” – David Timis explains why access to the internet is so important. He highlights the impact on the internet on a personal level, how these provided opportunity to him and how he has seen how it has helped many others. Timis talks specifically about the challenges in Romania and an initiative he has developed with Google to encourage users to learn different digital skills.

Questions for Reflection

Having watched the video, pose at least 3 reflective questions for the teacher to consider based on the content of the video:

  1. Access to the internet: what are the challenges of not having access to the internet and, more importantly, the challenges for those who do have access but don’t have digital skills.
  2. Would you say the intiative Timis is proposing is pratical for those who don’t have access to the internet and don’t have a basic level of digital skills?
  3. Why do digital skills matter to you as a trainer?
