Digital Skills for the Future of Work: Digital Citizen
In our third season, we will explore the new Profile of a Lifelong Learner, a framework that defines the digital skills needed for success in the future of work. Released in late 2020, the Profile includes five Features that unpack the intersection of digital and lifelong learning skills. Nested under each Feature are three Practices - habits that adult learners, job seekers, and workers should develop to thrive at work, in school, and in community life.
Our hope is that the research-backed Profile will help job seekers, workers, and job coaches build new skills that effectively prepare today’s workers for the jobs of today and tomorrow. Check out skillrise.org/profile to explore the framework and learn about the methodology for how it was developed.
In this episode, we explore the third of five Profile Features: Digital Citizen. Joining us for the conversation are two of our SkillRise advisors:
- Richard Culatta, CEO of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE)
- Kate Ash, Consulting Director for the Workforce Innovation Network at National Governors Association
In this episode, we talk about:
- The importance of digital citizenship in the modern world
- Why digital citizenship needs to be more than just online safety
- How states and governors have used the pandemic to assess and evolve communication and delivery systems
- The benefit of using standards frameworks to align language and simplify conversations across systems
