Bengaluru: The School of Legal Studies, CMR University on Wednesday conducted International Literacy Day to create awareness regarding the significance of literacy for social and human development.
The theme of this year’s International Literacy Day is: Literacy for a human-centered recovery: Narrowing the digital divide. UNESCO, on October 26, declared September 8 as Literacy Day to combat the worldwide issue of illiteracy. Literacy serves as a tool to empower individuals and communities.
The students of the School of Legal Studies (SOLS) took many creative ways on online platforms to drive home the theme. As digital platforms have become crucial for learning, the students focused their activities and discussions on how digital literacy could be spread to reduce the digital divide. The participants, while giving very interesting insight on the subject, pointed out that how the COVID-19 pandemic season showed that education should help in learning human values.
The students discussed how digital literacy can open up opportunities for learning as well as for being an entrepreneur. The other issues that came up for discussion included the magnitude of poverty, the effects of illiteracy, gender inequality, child mortality, and the ever increasing human population.
CMR University reiterated its commitment to empowering its students through various innovative learning methods. The Literacy Day celebration is one such initiative.
