Most young people in the Netherlands overestimate their digital skills and have trouble judging fake news and finding information online, according to studies by Kennisnet and Mediawijzer.net, RTL Nieuws reports.
The municipality of Amsterdam is investing 2 million euros into Amsterdam 021 - a program that aims to prepare children for the future by teaching them digital skills like coding and engineering, Het Parool reports.
The program is a collaboration between Amsterdam's public library, the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, Pakhuis de Zwijger and Waag Society/Fablab Amsterdam. The program is intended to make sure that no child falls behind in the development of digital and technical skills, which are vital for jobs in the future.
Google Netherlands will be introducing a campaign that is aimed at teaching entrepreneurs digital skills and how to do better business online. The aim for this campaign is to help them with the ultimate achievement of growing their businesses. The Digital Workshop will use a practical, accessible, and free handle for Dutch self-employed and small business owners
