Launch of National Digital Explorer (NDE) 2023 

ICDL Asia partners with Crescent Girls’ School to launch the National Digital Explorer (NDE) 2023 in Singapore for the second consecutive year. 

NDE 2023 is a nationwide digital literacy initiative aimed at empowering upper primary, secondary and JC students to learn real-world skills, enabling them to think critically and become more productive learners. 

Aligned with the latest Ministry of Education, Singapore’s EdTech Plan, this Student-Initiated Learning (SIL) initiative focuses on providing students with key skills and knowledge in the effective use of office productivity tools, online collaboration, and emerging technologies. 

First launched in 2022, over 10,000 students from 47 primary and secondary schools in Singapore participated in this initiative. 

At NDE 2023, students in Singapore will have the opportunity to gain essential digital knowledge and skills through NDE Learn, receive internationally recognised ICDL Profile Certificates and eBadges through NDE Certify, and even compete at the national level and represent Singapore in the ICDL Asia Digital Challenge through NDE Compete

Through this initiative, students will engage in a range of eLearning content and activities to build their knowledge progressively. Our eLearning platform also enables students to learn at their own pace using their personal devices. To further enhance their learning experience, students are encouraged to get certified and participate in our national and regional competitions, applying what they have learned and connecting with students beyond their community. 

Registration is now open, and interested schools may register via the NDE 2023 Registration Form before 31st March 2023. Interested school representatives may also contact for more information.
