In the world’s new knowledge economy, innovation and technological change
are recognised as the primary drivers of progress. Technological and
digital literacy will be a crucial part of helping many countries move
beyond their reliance on material resources.

Such literacy, and an understanding of technology in general, will also be
crucial for university students. They will have to develop the ability to
collaborate across multiple contexts, filter and synthesise information
from a variety of sources. These skills will be necessary if students are
to contribute to the world in the 21st century.
