World Computer Literacy Day is December 2nd! This celebration of computers began in 2001, founded by the National Institute of Information Technology, an Indian computer company, after research suggested that the majority of computer users around the world were men. What started as an initiative intended to encourage the development of technological skills, particularly among children and women in India, has since expanded with aims to "create awareness and drive digital literacy in underserved communities worldwide.”

Out-of-school time (OST) learning can take many forms - from teacher-led programs designed to improve academic performance to multipurpose enrichment activities like clubs and sports. What all OST education efforts share is the wide range of benefits to learners who engage with academic and social activities when school is not in session.
