Digital technologies are becoming an integral part of society today. They have brought about many conveniences such as online shopping and accessible entertainment, as well as other benefits including a greater ease in navigation, new ways of learning and fostering deeper connections with family and friends.
As Malaysia becomes increasingly connected through technology, it is important that no one is excluded from these benefits and opportunities provided by technology in their day-to-day lives. This includes the more vulnerable segments of society such as the seniors, low-income families and people with disabilities.
Our Digital Readiness efforts aim to equip our citizens to use technology actively, responsibly and confidently. Our programmes reach out to individuals, schools and communities across all ages. It provides them with access to technology, digital literacy skills and know-how, as well as the experiential opportunity to try their hands on a myriad of frontier technology to understand how they can impact the way we work, live, learn, and play.
