What does the digitization of public administration mean
The digitalization of public services is the main reform that developed countries bring to the interaction between the state and citizens. Access to and use of digital technologies has several advantages, fundamentally changing the way democracy works, opening up new spaces and platforms for engagement and transforming citizens from passive beneficiaries into active participants who can help identify solutions and governance challenges.
Parental controls and digital content accessed by children
Raw, unfiltered access to information is one of the pillars of free expression. Censorship does not bring benefits in any way, so that, within the framework of digitalization, considerable efforts have been made to ensure everyone access to unaltered information, which is the exact reality. However, this is not an advantage when it comes to children. If an adult has discernment and can choose for himself, a child does not have this ability. In this case, the role of "moderator" belongs to the parent. So how do we filter, the information to which the child is exposed, for his safety online? Read in the article published by Lumina newspaper in the partnership on digital education concluded with ANIS.
