Looking at the Information age, World is soon changing in seconds. And many opportunities are coming up with digital lifestyle. Entire world is going Digital. And yes, tomorrow's life is surely the techno savvy digital life. Now, once we know Today and tomorrow's scenario, then why not start preparing today itself. As it is said “proper preparation prevents poor performance”.
1. Start the training of computing:
Looking at the future digital life the boys and girls clubs of America started their Digital Youth Development Initiative in partnership with Microsoft. They have started the computer science curriculum -including the coding, computational thinking and app development and have recently launched the digital program called as “My Future” to seek the necessary digital skills.
With efforts today surely we can expect the tomorrow’s generation to be ready today.
2. Online Learning:
Gone are those days when we used to search good institute for learning. With internet we can get everything and all the vital information anytime. Even if the schools, colleges or any local bodies are not providing quality digital skills. Let’s learn online through various platforms available worldwide. With enrolments to such online courses we get knowledge and also we are with the world in development.
3. Domain selection:
The computing and digital world is very vast. Don’t be in a hurry to learn everything. We have to focus on one particular area/field. But which one to choose is the major part. Although it is vast but we need to understand the basics of various domains. Understand its working on technical details, once one particular field is liked then work on it continuously. Try to dig deeper in that. Suppose you like android application development, just focus on it. Start learning its programming various aspects and working.
4. Applications in real life:
“Google” we all know what it does. It provides us with information based on our queries. Apply the application understanding while learning. Let’s take an example of android application development again, now what does it do, how it works, how it can benefit society?, will people like it?, Is it user friendly?, Who are the end users ?. Understanding the various applications in real life, we get deeper understanding of its working and implementation. Once that goal is clear than learning and executing is also simple and interesting.
5. Consistency is the key:
Knowing the future opportunities and kid’s passion, one can plan a long career and good life ahead. But at the last the most important attribute to really build your future is to be consistent with your efforts and stick to your plan. There is no substitute for hard work. It is with consistent efforts we can pave the way for the better future tomorrow. Let’s make kids to tap that consistent learning way and be ready for using digital skills for betterment of life and the world.
