The new web portal En Mi Idioma (In My Language) [www.enmiidioma.org/es], designed by Colnodo, is aimed at increasing the participation of Colombia’s indigenous communities in the information and knowledge society while using ICT tools to contribute to the preservation of their cultures, traditions and languages.
In 2013, Colnodo continued to promote ICT training, appropriation and use through the Colombian government’s national ICT plan, Vive Digital, under an agreement with the ICT Ministry. Colnodo participated in an initiative to build the capacities of so-called ICT Promoters through virtual training by developing a total of 24 courses, 20 of them designed to be self-taught, two offered through a tutor, and another two offered by a tutor but with the use of video streaming. Access to innovative online tools is fostered through the operation, maintenance, development and promotion of a Ministry of ICT platform called SoyTIC (“I Am ICT”) [www.soytic.gov.co], designed and implemented by Colnodo. Another joint project between Colnodo and the ICT Ministry is Hogar Digital (Digital Household), which introduces participants to various ICT tools.
