Creativity & Innovation is the ability bring divergent thinking together in a new way of looking at problems.  Drawing connections thru categorization, prioritization or other segmentation allows a 360 view of an idea and can bring out the best in everyone, creating a shared sense of team accomplishment.

Digital Proficiency

As part of the Digital Skills Framework, we offer the below information to help you with your journey to digital proficiency. Each category has three sections:

  • Read - Provides reading material on the topic.
  • Watch - Provides videos to watch on the skills topic.
  • Try - Provides more traditional hands-on learning.

Each of the learning items has a marker in the upper left corner. Grey is for basic getting started learning, blue is for the next step in building skills, and orange is for proficiency level learning.

We hope this helps you get started on your journey and we welcome your feedback and suggestions to make this a better place for digital skills. Is something missing that you would like to add? Use this form to propose new learning content for the Digital Skills Framework.
