Maintenance Certificate Online e-Learning Program

Region : AmericaAward : Bronze
Project Description and Social Impact
The Acer Maintenance Certificate Online e-Learning Program primarily focused in diving senior high school students the basic skills needed to repair Chromebooks. A total of five schools and 152 students registered to participate. Students were able to use online e-learning resources to learn at their own pace. Through online study, exams, and assessments, they earned certificates of competency, and their schools could then use these trained and certified students to assist the school' IT staff while also enabling them to gain work experience and improve their skills. The program brought together staff from multiple Acer departments, including training, maintenance, and digital services, working as a team and investing nearly 1,200 hours in identifying and clarifying the appropriate knowledge and skills to teach and working with educators and students to provide a more comprehensive understanding of the purpose of the program. This program also sparked an interest in Acer products among many people.

Acer US x MACLAs DMCStudio Poetry Workshops

Region : AmericaAward : Bronze
Project Description and Social Impact
In order to break down barriers between people and technology, Acer' US employees have served as afterschool tutors and volunteers, helping young people between the ages of 12 and 19 in Macla' DMCStudio poetry workshops. Over the course of several workshops, they engaged in in-depth dialogue and sharing with young people, with topics covering the influence of social media, mental illness, career choices and truancy, refugees, and more. These conversations further inspired the young people involved to create poetry, using the equipment available at the DMCStudio digital workshops to create movies, music, and photography. These workshops brought together the technology and art communities. The poetry workshops also provided a safe space for the 19 teenagers taking part to discuss and create.
