Telangana Information Technology Association (TITA) in association with Vignan Institute of Technology & Science organized ‘Telangana Digithon’ program in college Auditorium on Tuesday. Digital literacy program named ‘Telangana Digithon’ in partnership with Ministry of IT – Telangana Government aimed to train 10,000 Digital Leaders was launched last month. As part of Digital Literacy Mission, TITA trained 200 Digital Leaders in Vignan Engineering College.
TITA’s ‘Telangana Digithon’ is aimed at narrowing the digital literacy gap that persists in Telangana State by providing digital literacy trainers called ‘Digital Leaders’ with an easy-to-use platform for digital training and generously share their knowledge and experience with learners all over the state who desire a better livelihood in this digital world. Digital Leaders will follow a fully-developed curriculum to teach.
Each ‘Digital Leader’ will receive a certification and will choose a specific area of the community to work with. TITA has targeted to prepare 10000 Digital Leaders in its first phase. Two Hundred students from Vignan Institute of Technology & Science enrolled and received ‘Telangana Digithon’ training and Certification.
“We are proud to release this new platform designed for Digital Leaders who will be in a position to provide digital training to vulnerable populations. This diverse knowledge community that comes together for Digital Literacy mission enables us to engage as trainers in preparing people who are not connected to Digital Tools and platforms which improves their quality of living” said TITA Vice President Ranapratap Bojjam.
