Last week, I was invited to attend a certification training program called IC Citizen which was run by AITI in collaboration with Prestariang Systems Sdn Bhd.
IC CITIZEN Certification is the first of its kind in the world that is specially developed and designed to produce digitally literate and responsible citizens. This unique yet universal certification program aims to impart Acceptable Usage Policy (AUP) that lays down rules of acceptable ‘netiquette’ or behaviour that is appropriate when using technology in a collaborative and multi-cultural society.
The Chief Knowledge Officer of Prestariang Systems, Encik Abd Hamid Abd Rahman, said that “It is very important to have this certification because it signifies that you have the knowledge, understanding on appropriate etiquette when you are online. This indicates that you are a reliable and ethical person when dealing with digital tools. Certifying Brunei teachers with IC CITIZEN Certification will provide them with the confidence, knowledge and skills to educate their netizen students, thanks to AITI for their forward-thinking initiative”.
