Working closely with the Media Literacy Council, IMDA aims to raise the level of media literacy and foster a safer and more responsible Internet environment for all.
To help consumers better understand the key infocomm technologies they can use every day to improve their lives, IMDA also provides consumer resources such as guides to picking the right broadband plans, as well as reports on the connection statistics of major service providers in Singapore.
Consumers can also learn how to better protect their personal data, through guides and best practices developed by the Personal Data Protection Commission.
IMDA has a number of schemes designed to benefit those in need. The NEU PC Plus Programme enables families with school-going children to receive a PC at home, while the Digital TV Assistance Scheme helps low-income Singaporean families to make a smooth transition to DTV.
And for seniors interested to connect up for the first time, IMDA’s IT for Seniors programmes brings an exciting curriculum to empower them on their digital journey. It includes inter-generational IT bootcamp and various learning opportunities to join the online community.
