CAPACITY BUILDING FOR DIGITAL PROGRAMS
The PCCA mission to support capacity for digital programs has led to the formation of an initiative aimed at empowering youth or individuals that are re-training to master digital technologies for cloud computing, initially for applications using geospatial data and then broadening to include other types of data store including real-time 3d. These programs are in the midst of development for certification of educational credit.
In preparation for a Digital Supercluster call for capacity building projects, PCCA is continuing to evolve a model that aims to assist in the fostering of digital skills through paired learning, industry-university-and-community collaboration, and social/environmental impact or computing-for-good (C4G) projects. It is envisioned that participating students, both university and community, will be as paid internship, work-integrated-learning or scholarship positions. Support for the hardware and cloud resources will also be worked into the proposal(s).
