Project Manager for the Caribbean Digital Transformation Project Dr. Jermaine Jean Pierre, says despite the fact that young people are growing up in the era of technology, they do not utilize it wisely.
Dr Jean Pierre was delivering the Keynote address at the Dominica Association of Teachers sixteenth biennial conference on Wednesday.
The association hosted its first in-person conference since the Covid -19 pandemic under the theme “The Teacher: A Digital Citizen Surviving Crisis, Securing the Future”.
As part of the days’ events, the association honored several members who have retired over the last two years including the current Minister for Education and Parliamentary Representative for the Castle Bruce Constituency Octavia Alfred.
She explained what it means to be a digital citizen.
According to Jean Pierre, digital citizenship provides help to both teachers and parents as they learn how to utilize technology correctly.
