In 2019, ALL DIGITAL Week is held for the first time in Armenia. It is led by STEM Society in partnership with Safer Internet Armenia Programme.

The activities were run by a consortium of partners from public and private sectors.

Events and training activities enabled young people and adults learn new digital skills, practice their creativity, critical thinking, and communication capabilities.

Schools in the capital city and regions of Armenia hosted workshops on Internet Safety and Media Literacy, during which issues related to safer and smarter usage of the Internet and digital technologies, media and digital literacy were discussed, and educational materials were disseminated.
