Millicom Tigo offers educators free, digital educational tools with Maestr@s Conectad@s’ web-based app

Last month, Millicom Tigo launched its Maestr@s Conectad@s web-based app at to empower and support educators as virtual education becomes a global reality due to the pandemic.

In line with Broadband Commission’s Advocacy Target 4 to promote digital skills development, Millicom Tigo is now offering free, digital education courses to all teachers, mentors, and educators looking to acquire more digital skills and take their educational mission to virtually anywhere.

Millicom Tigo first launched Maestr@s Conectad@s in 2020 in the countries where it operates to strengthen digital education systems that had been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The program was designed to reduce the digital divide, and its contents initially consisted of online training which prepared educators including teachers, school administrators, and others, to understand and use digital tools to improve educational quality.

The program represents one of Millicom’s most important ESG-based education programs aimed at improving and empowering lives through connectivity.
