A Policy Review: Building Digital Citizenship in Asia-Pacific through Safe, Effective and Responsible Use of ICT

.

Considering that ICT is the dominant means by which citizens can participate in and contribute to the knowledge society, it is of paramount importance that they equip themselves with the appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes to harness its potential benefits. In relation to this, UNESCO Bangkok presents the publication entitled “A Policy Review: Building Digital Citizenship in Asia and the Pacific through Safe, Effective and Responsible Use of ICT” that examines current national policy responses to the issues relating to use of ICT and assessed the education sector’s readiness and capacity in fostering digital citizenship among children aged 0-18. Participated by 22 out of 46 Asia Pacific Member States, the Policy Review addresses core indicators including availability of national curriculum for digital citizenship, policies that guide schools in mediating children’s appropriate use of ICT and capacitating teachers, schools’ online security measures, and adequate school infrastructure.
