Time With Thought-Leaders
There is a lineup of exciting resource persons from the ICT sector as well as organizations with direct or indirect link to the technology sector. These persons cutting across banking and finance, health, education, agriculture, entertainment and telecommunication in general will bring their perspective to bear on the ADL, helping young people get grip from start.
As the name suggests this to offer the Africa Digital Leader an introduction into the design and development of the various Apps. An experience we consider to be the second and third levels of Digital Literacy and readiness skills as espouse in the OEDC 2030.
The assumption is that if ADL (as consumer) will have an insight into what goes into building Apps and what Apps are suppose to do to humanity, they will be best placed to consider the development of appropriate and relevant Apps which could help address the problems of humanity rather than develop Apps for distraction. It will also afford the opportunity to the ADL to building African contents and support in job creation and revenue generation in the future.

This will help COA in putting forward some of the feedbacks from the session by way of thinking through ideas and encouraging originality and demystify the notion that Africans should be only good as adopters and consumers.
Once in a while there will be a game champion ship among ADL with sports journalist serving as judges for the best gamer. The e-sports or games championship is our way of creating fun and generating interest while talking and discussing safety and citizenship. It will also afford the ADL leaders and the cybersecurity experts to review and assess the human centeredness of the particular platform or game being introduced.
ADL Leaders Safety with Games chat
The aim of this session with the ADL to empower them to financially and economically while introducing them to the opportunities there are in the technology and ICT sectors in general. We believe this will help inform some of the career choices they will make into from a practical and informed positions. Masterclass sessions will also afford professionals, entrepreneurs, graduates and older students an opportunity to ask the necessary questions for practical responses from industry practitioners within the value chain of Information Communication Technology, with particular emphasis on Digital Entrepreneurship and competitiveness.

Beyond the Africa Thought Leaders chat, the programme will afford the ADLs to facilitate their own sessions based on a topic and chosen area of the curriculum.
This curriculum involves a discussion about putting to use all the 8 core digital citizenship competencies in addition to others developed during the discussion to use. It is expected that the ADL programme will develop digital leaders who have the safety and security of their personal data as well as that of others as a hallmark of identity. These will be delivered by experienced players from the various sectors in Africa and beyond.
