A Symposium on Tech-Proof Your Future: The Importance of Being AI-Literate and Having Digital Skills for Students

This symposium is aimed at students, parents, teachers and other stakeholders in education. During this symposium, we’ll look at the importance of digital skills and being AI-literate in student development.
