Information literacy skills are a pre-requisite for building a digital Bangladesh, speakers at a training course said on Saturday. Digital Bangladesh by 2021 became the corner stone of the Charter for Change, the election manifesto of Bangladesh Awami League for the 9th Parliamentary Election. The Digital Bangladesh vision is unique as it proposes to mainstream ICT as a pro-poor tool. BARM(S) is working closely with Muhammad Mezbah-ul-Islam, supporting his campaign on information literacy. Also, BARM(S) Train of Trainers Records Management programme, an e-learning tool in moodle, fits very well in the Digital Bangladesh – vision.
