Partnering with Accenture and the DQ Institute, the Alannah & Madeline Foundation will give young Australians and New Zealanders the skills to thrive in a digital world, launching a high quality educational and teaching program in early 2021. It will be available to all students aged 11-14 across Australia and New Zealand and will be replicated in a third country in South East Asia, reaching 150,000 students.
This world-first collaboration will see students have access to a new eSmart Digital Licence, an interactive eLearning platform which helps students become smart, safe and responsible online and which is part of the Foundation’s eSmart framework.
The Foundation’s CEO Lesley Podesta said "The support from Accenture and the DQ Institute will enable us to bridge the digital divide which contributes to inequity in education and limits future opportunities for so many children. This ground-breaking partnership will ensure the next generation will be able to be part of the global economy."
