What is ASEAN Digital innovation?

In 2019, the ASEAN Foundation is partnering with Microsoft to implement the ASEAN Digital Innovation Programme focusing on capacitating underserved youths on digital skills and computer science in seven ASEAN Member States (Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, and Viet Nam). The Programme is supporting the ASEAN priorities on ASEAN Work Plan on Youth and Education 2016-2020 and ASEAN ICT Master Plan 2020.

Open Development Cambodia (ODC) together with the ICT4D Cambodia Network are the local partners in Cambodia to implement the ASEAN Digital Innovation Program, which is supported by the ASEAN Foundation and the Microsoft. We are organizing the Training of the Trainers (TOT) on the digital skills and computer science to Cambodian educators, CSOs/NGOs trainers, community youth leaders, as well as underserved youths. The training will allow them to thrive in the industrial revolution 4.0 in the regional context.

The purpose of the TOT training

The TOT is aimed at capacitating the selected 80 educators/trainers in two separate trainings on how to deliver inclusive and gender responsive computer science training by harnessing a specially developed platform, the “futurereadyasean.com”. The platform will enable the trainers to share with, deliver to, and mentor underserved youths or students at their schools, communities or in their projects to use the platform.

Venue and date

Each of the training will accommodate 40 participants. Each session is eight-hour long with one-hour break (refreshment and lunch will be provided). The participants will be provided access to online platform with relevant materials during the session.
