IT elementary school is a social business (also called a social enterprise), which broadly means that we are driven by a social cause not by profit. The cause being to improve Digital Literacy and Inclusion for all, and provide a springboard for improving [your] confidence in using the internet, accessing Digital Services, and all the potential life-changing benefits of engaging fully in the Digital World.
We will do this by building a safe, jargon-free, supportive community and portal for learning. We aim to provide as much free valuable content and learning resources as possible. In order to create a profitable and sustainable business we will also offer additional premium paid-for services and subscriptions, and work with carefully selected Partners and Affinities. See also Our Partners.
IT elementary school values:
- And a passion for Life-long Learning
For those of you interested in Social Media we are using a number of general and specific hash-tags to engage with a wider community:
One of the problems in learning – and a lot of life’s biggest challenges – is knowing where to start. This could be a personal learning and development roadmap, a trusted guide (or educator, mentor, domain expert?), the right materials, and in the right format, for your needs. This is where IT elementary school can help.
Counter-intuitively the huge amount of stuff on the internet and web makes this journey – your journey – more difficult.
Which websites and providers should you trust?
Why is there so much jargon, and so much confusing and sometimes contradictory or incorrect advice?
Without getting into any political or philosophical debates that’s because the web wasn’t designed and built for you, it has evolved to provide access to public or private services and a platform to search for content of interest, almost entirely ‘to Google’. On the first day of school children are not told, here’s the web, go and find your own coursework … but this is broadly what adults are expected to do, in order to learn after full-time education.
With us it’s personal!
As well as starting to find your personal pathway, there may be some things that set you apart from every other person; you may not want to commit to a particular formal certification route or career-path; you may have limited time to learn (as opposed to formal ‘study’); you may prefer particular types of content that suit your lifestyle and learning style? IT elementary school must understand your needs and wants in order to tailor your learning experience and outcomes to the only person who matters in this … you, the learner.
