PIX - France
Pix was founded in 2016 as a non-profit public organisation in France, which aims to improve digital literacy all over the world. Behind Pix stands a team of more than 70 international experts who work on digital skills and jobs in various areas.
The organisation brings together various public actors from all around France that are involved in education and training.
Aims and objectives
PIX's mission is to support the digital competence of everyone in France, and 90 people work for the organisation that helps people with lifelong learning and digital skills at all stages of their lives. PIX offers a self-assessment test, with 5 domains of expertise: Information and data, Communication and collaboration, Content creation, Protection and security, Digital environment.
Evidence of success
PIX provides an accessible self-assessment tool to allow learners to assess their digital understanding and proficiency. The tool in itself: including fun challenges and real-life scenarios, tips on manipulating data, browsing through the web, or answering digital culture questions. Learners can also get access to online tutorials to upskill further.
In 2022, ANSSI, the French National Agency for the Security of Information Systems, joined Pix and Cybermalveillance.gouv.fr, with the support of the French Ministry of National Education, Youth and Sports, to offer a practical online repository for education and training stakeholders on digital skills and provide access to educators and training providers. The repository focuses on the broad topic of cybersecurity: from good practices to tips and advice on online behaviour, use of digital tools, good practices in online teaching and learning, awareness of existing threats, aiming to engage the entire community in safe internet practices.
