Facebook’s first digital literacy programme in Singapore

Facebook is bringing its new digital literacy programme to Singapore first. It aims to train 1 million people in Asia Pacific to think critically and share thoughtfully online by 2020.

According to Facebook, the We Think Digital initiative is an online education portal with interactive tutorials covering a number of topics such as: privacy, safety, security, digital discourse, and knowing your digital footprint.

There are four modules that have been developed by experts from the region, these include: What is the Internet?; Your digital footprint; Be a critical thinker; and, You as a digital citizen.

Singapore will be the first country in Asia Pacific to run the programme, before it is rolled out to other regional markets like the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and Taiwan.
