Essential digital skills framework
The UK Essential digital skills framework was updated on 23 April 2019. Sadly there is very little mention of open formats such as ODF. There is also no mention of free software, privacy aware social media etc. Very worrying given recent privacy and potential rights violations by the big tech companies. Despite the huge fine levied on Facebook nothing will change as politicians are too weak and pathetic.
I have made a Friendi.ca post ( friendi.ca ) where I have suggested we need to write some instructions on how to use alternatives. Comments and help with this are welcome.
I am going to make some follow up posts to this that look at some of the specific platforms and solutions that are available and how to undertake common tasks listed in the digital skills using these alternatives.
