The National Energy Skills Center (NESC) has developed a special training program for parents of their children in e-learning in Maya. The program was timely, especially since a significant number of students continued their education online and needed technological support from their parents, according to media reports.
On Saturday 18th, the graduates’ parents participated in a program that provided them with the necessary ICT skills, including document creation and formatting. Cyber security and privacy were also key features of the program to raise awareness of the risks associated with the virtual environment, the statement said.
Judith Bruce spoke of her fear of being paralyzed by the classroom valerian Victoria’s online learning environment, but expressed her gratitude for being able to manage digital platforms. She encouraged other parents not to succumb to fear but to take the initiative and improve the lives of their children.
