GSMA relaunches Mobile Internet Skills Training Toolkit

The GSMA has recently relaunched its toolkit that was developed in 2016 by the Connected Society programme to improve mobile digital literacy. The Mobile Internet Skills Training Toolkit (MISTT) provides a set of resources to promote digital literacy, help people use the Internet more safely on their mobile, and ensure they have the skills required for a digital future. The MISTT uses a ‘train the trainer’ approach and consists of short lessons in a PDF format that can be easily adapted to local needs and languages. MISTT modules consist of an introductory module that covers the basics of the Internet, including Internet safety and costs, as well as modules on WhatsApp, YouTube, Google, Wikipedia, Facebook, online safety, mobile money, Android, accessibility features, and KaiOS. A number of MISTT modules have already been translated into six languages: English, French, Swahili, Hindi, Bengali, and Kinyarwanda.
