In 5 days, from 22 to 26 March, Extremadura's Digital Competence Centres have been fully participating in different All Digital Week events :)
AUPEX's Digital Skills Programme for Employability of Extremadura launched 4 activities (both online and offline) to enhance digital skills, the importance of media literacy and critical thinking in the digital skills training process, as well as the need to understand the importance of coding, STEAM-based professions and the challenges of artificial intelligence or the opportunities offered by the digital cultural heritage.
We were talking about digital cultural heritage in a webinar with Ylenia Cariani from Egina, about different options and projects to take advantage of digital technologies applied to heritage, especially now with permanent mobility restrictions, lockdowns ... and the importance of digital skills.

Are we aware of the importance and power of dis-misinformation? Do we know the impact of dis-misinformation in today's society? Participants have been able to learn about different examples of misinformation and disinformation, understanding the importance of stop, think and verify training digital skills such as browsing, searching and filtering data on the Internet. We could also highlight the conversations generated around this topic and the interest in using specific tools such as www.infopirina.org or the fact-checking website www.maldita.es
Related to artificial intelligence, we have used www.somossia.org to learn about operation, ethics and algorithm bias in AI, detecting potentials, risks and opportunities associated with employability. What does it mean in people's daily lives? Participants have learned how machine learning works, using different examples such as the Google Draw tool or www.moralmachine.net. With this practice, they have also trained some digital skills related to the information and data literacy area.
Last but not least, we have used augmented reality in participant's resume, a "magic" touch that improves personal branding and boosts opportunities for getting a job. We have used imagination, motivation and creative use of technology applied to employability.
Even with reduced capacity, social distancing, mobility restrictions or even lockdowns... together, we are all stronger than the pandemic!
