Smart Nation, SkillsFuture and LOOP.sg
“This is a whole-of-nation journey Singapore is embarking on. To succeed, we need people, businesses and Government to work together because ultimately, citizens are at the heart of our Smart Nation vision, and not technology.”
Singapore’s Smart Nation plan is not just about improving the info-comm industries in Singapore, it ties in closely with the SkillsFuture effort to ensure that Singapore as a nation is prepared for the next evolution in technology, whether it is as part of their careers or as part of their daily lives. By promoting a culture of learning through SkillsFuture, this aims to prep Singaporeans and those in Singapore for the changes that will come with new technologies.
Smart Nation is about putting in place the infrastructure, policies, ecosystem and capabilities to enable innovations impacting how citizens travel, where they live, daily transactions, and how it can support the lifelong needs of citizens. It also encourages a culture of experimentation and building, and working with citizens and companies to co-create solutions.
SkillsFuture is a national movement to enable all Singaporeans to develop to their fullest potential throughout life. Whichever stage of life you are in, whether you are in your schooling years, early career, mid-career or silver years, SkillsFuture will enable you to take advantage of a wide range of opportunities – to help you realise your aspirations and attain mastery of skills.
The core concept of LOOP is a simple, yet effective and vital one, especially in Singapore’s push to become a Smart Nation: Connect the world’s learners with the world’s teachers under a single roof. To that end, LOOP was developed as a one-stop marketplace and learning hub for every kind of e-learning imaginable.
How it all comes together
Think of all of these parts existing as a group. Smart Nation aims to be the overarching plan that covers all the concerns and needs of those in Singapore when it comes to incorporating new info-comm technology into their lives. SkillsFuture aims to allow Singaporeans to develop the skills to manage, create and manipulate these new technologies. As an e-learning online platform, LOOP.sg has a host of courses needed to educate and train Singaporeans through a new technology-based platform.
