    (ANSA) – ROME, JUN 28 – According to the Desi 2021 Report, Italy ranks 20th out of 27 European countries for the diffusion of technology and digital skills. Only 42% of people between 16 and 74 have basic digital skills, compared to 56% in Europe, and only 22% have more advanced digital skills, compared to 31% in Europe. To bring seventh grade boys and girls closer to digital skills, and to discover the opportunities offered by the technology sector, in the school year 2021-22, WeSchool created the GetIT project with Amazon Web Services (AWS). Students challenged each other to design an app that could solve a problem in their school or community.

    “As many as 416 teams from all over the country have sent us their idea of ​​the app – explains Federica Leotta, Head of Education and Employer Branding at WeSchool -. This shows that our constant support to teachers has had a direct impact on students, who they felt involved and motivated in the challenge “. “The AWS GetIT project has shown that technology can really help schools and communities – adds Cecile Bonnet, AWS GetIT Global Leader -. We want young people to be aware of the enormous possibilities that the technology industry offers today, and we we are committed to encouraging students to be more self-confident and overcome gender stereotypes “.
