“Strengthening Digital Ecosystem for Better Digital Inclusion”

In today's digital era, certainty and guarantee for digital inclusion is needed. Digital inclusion is a framework for assessing and considering access to opportunities in a digital era. Digital inclusion requires availability: a). availability of high-speed internet access infrastructure, b) digital literacy education program for acceleration of
adoption, and c). information technology specifically in the form of online service platforms and useful applications.

Of course the three things above require a very strong adhesive, in the form of multistakeholder collaboration work. Multi stakeholders work of course has become something that is accepted and appreciated by various parties as a way of being transparent, accountable and legitimate in order to achieve common goals. Internet
access, digital literacy and information technology services, along with multistakeholder collaborative work form an ecosystem, a digital ecosystem, which ofcourse will differ in challenges and opportunities from one country to another. Digital literacy is very important to be implemented in the primary, secondary, and
even tertiary educational system because digital literacy matters as it helps student learning and citizenship by teaching students how to fine, evaluate, use and create digital content in meaningful ways. Digitally literate students will confident using digital content and tools in their learning. Digital literacy skills enable them to: find and access digital content that is fit for purpose; analyse and combine information to develop their own understandings; create and share digital content in purposeful ways. To better understand digital literacy, an understanding of the issues pertaining to digital literacy implementation is necessary. There are also impeding factors instigated by the government and the community in the implementation of digital literacy. Firstly,
there is the matter of government readiness, which is an internal issue of the government in its implementation of digital governance. Secondly, the digital divide may also be considered an impeding factor which originates from within the community itself in relation to the implementation of digital governance. However, from a number of existing studies, it can be surmised that government readiness on implementing digital governance may be measured based on some of the following items: infrastructure availability, both physical and non-physical; civil servant aptitude in operating ICT; national income, which influence the country’s access to technology; and government collaboration with other stakeholders in implementing digital governance policy agenda. For this reason, it is necessary to exchange ideas and brainstorming from related parties so that collaborative work in each country can strengthen the digital ecosystem, and of course, ultimately can support the realization of digital inclusion.
