Digital Literacy in Today's World: How ELATT is Bridging the Gap

In today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, the importance of digital literacy cannot be overstated. As we move through the complexities of the 21st century, the need for digital literacy has become more crucial than ever. We at ELATT understand this shift and are committed to equipping our students with the essential digital skills needed for today’s workforce.

Digital literacy is much more than just being able to use a computer or smartphone. It involves a deep understanding of digital tools, platforms, and the internet. In today’s world, being digitally literate means you can confidently navigate the internet, do online tasks, send emails, create documents, shop online, create and edit photos and video, even understand basic code and design. It’s about being skilled in the digital world, ensuring you can succeed in both your personal and professional life. Having digital skills opens up a world of opportunities. It can lead to better job prospects, continuous learning and development, and discovering new personal and professional possibilities. In an age where digital presence is almost as significant as physical presence, being digitally literate is crucial for effective communication, continuous learning, and accessing a myriad of online services and opportunities.

In a world where technology is closely linked with our daily lives, not having digital skills can be a major obstacle. It can stop people from accessing important services, connecting with others, and finding job opportunities. A lack of digital skills can lead to missed chances and feeling out of place in a world that’s increasingly online. Recognising the critical role of these skills in modern life, we at ELATT have developed a comprehensive approach to ensure our students are not only digitally literate but also ready to thrive in an increasingly digital world.

We also recognised the unique challenges faced by ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) learners. To address this, we have developed specialised digital skills programmes specifically tailored for this demographic.

They cover fundamental aspects such as using the internet, email communication, online shopping and understanding online safety.

These courses also help to progress to a vocational course at ELATT.
