#DotComprehension

Create a short video to win a £50 and a digital badge to add to your CV.

Challenge details


Technology is transforming the way we live and work and while we are expected to be ‘digital natives’ it doesn’t necessarily mean we understand all the tech terms! They can be big words, have dual meaning and can seem like another language to some.

So, TATA Consultancy services one of the biggest IT firms in the world are asking you to simplify some key tech terms in a six second video. You can find the list of terms in the inspiration section OR chose your own!

All you have to do is choose one tech term and explain it to us in your short video.

You can create a vine, a YouTube clip, Vimeo... whatever you choose. You can sing, dance, tell a story, a joke…we are asking you to be as creative as possible.

Your response will be judged on;

-       Creativity;

-       How well you show your comprehension of the term; and

-       How well you express the term in the short amount of time.

Once you upload your response, please visit the badge academy website to download your Digital Badge which can be included on your CV! Come back to our site to upload it on our CV Builder.

Your entries will be shared with our users to generate a little friendly competition.
