  • Tue, 23 Oct 2012ICDL JORDAN RECEIVES PRESTIGIOUS INTERNATIONAL BEST PRACTICE AWARD

  •  

    The Project ‘Knowledge Stations’ is the Winner in the Social Inclusion Category

    At the ECDL Foundation Forum 2012, held in Oslo, Norway, the entry submitted by ICDL Jordan wasvoted to be an outstanding example of best practice in the Social Inclusion category.

    ECDL Foundation, the certifying authority for the world’s leading international computer skills certification programme, ECDL / ICDL, established the Best Practice Awards to acknowledge and credit initiatives and projects that are considered as exceptional examples of the implementation of ECDL Foundation programmes that help to raise levels of digital literacy, and promote ECDL / ICDL in local markets.

    The Social Inclusion category acknowledges and credits successful projects/initiatives which promote access to ICT skills for everybody, either by concentrating on a specific sector of society (for example the blind, or the elderly), or which concentrate on making the ECDL / ICDL certification more accessible to everyone through, for example, cost incentives, or the provision of special training or equipment.

     The ICDL Jordan ‘Knowledge Stations’ project, an initiative that has been delivered in close cooperation with Government, details how many challenges have been overcome to enable the delivery of ICT skills to citizens in remote and underprivileged regions of Jordan.

    This year, the ECDL Foundation Best Practice Awards ceremony was attended by ICT professionals and digital literacy policy shapers, representing national computer societies and international organisations in 148 countries around the world.

    The runner-up in this category was ECDL Switzerland.

    There are three other categories for the ECDL Foundation Best Practice Awards, and this year’s winners in these categories are:

    Corporate/Private – ECDL Switzerland, Government/Public – ICDL Colombia, and Marketing & Public Relations – ICDL Korea.
