itrust consulting's team wishes you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2016!
Sending our greetings by e-mail allows us to donate our end-of-year budget for presents and paper-based greeting cards to the following organisations instead:
- Caritas Luxembourg, for their project "Solidarity and integration" supporting the Syrian refugees in Luxembourg;
- Raoul Follereau ONG, for their project "Sterengthening the educational institution's capacity in the region of Ségou" in Mali.
On invitation by the Lycée Ermesinde in Mersch, C. Harpes participated to a brainstorming together with teachers and students, on the evolution of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and the expectation of the sector toward the school system.
For C. Harpes, the ICT sector offers more opportunities than just programming. The use of ICT and new media should be part of any school subject, particularly languages. Basic concepts like firewalls, geolocation, cloud, software installation, and protection of personal data should already be taught to the youngest pupils at secondary schools, as a large majority of our population uses such technologies without fully understanding them or even roughly knowing the related risks and opportunities.
Finally, the very open discussion highlighted that the essential skill required in this sector is the motivation and perseverance in problem solving. Wrongly considered as a predominantly male occupation, the increasing requirement for excellent communication skills should make this sector equally attractive for female candidates.
