Education and the digital world are now inextricably linked, whether in the home, at school or in other settings, where digital tools and technologies are used to support learning. Education institutions increasingly rely on and need to work closely with the private sector to support this new learning environment. Business enterprises provide cutting-edge learning technologies and a host of associated digital services and learning resources. Partnerships between education institutions and the private sector potentially have the leverage to open a world of new opportunities for enhancing learning possibilities for all.
The aim of these guidelines is to foster better understanding of digital citizenship education and the role that partnerships can play in enhancing outcomes for learners.
The guidelines are intended to be a resource to support successful partnership building and to provide a framework for embedding digital citizenship education at the heart of the relationship between education and the private sector.
