  • njeans Nick jeans, Consultant in learning technology at Sero Consulting Ltd Digital Inclusion needs to make use of existing expertise in the community. Why?
    • It’s cheap – volunteers are happy to share what they know.
    • It’s effective – the 8m digitally excluded are becoming more entrenched in their resistance to digital technology. The last thing they need is a digital evangelist who will turn them off even more. They will listen to a friend, relative or colleague who understands them and what might be the killer app for them – Skype, shopping, travel, whatever.
    • It benefits the volunteer – many NEETs (for example) have digital skills that are valuable to others in the community. This makes them feel valued and looks great on their CVs, potentially leading to jobs and learning progression.
    • All that is needed is a mechanism to mobilize this expertise, advise on appropriate mentoring and provide enough incentives to make it worthwhile to volunteer.

    Take a look at www.makingitpersonal.eu which offers qualifications for volunteers, a forum to share experiences, resources and tips to expand digital expertise and a framework to develop skills that can be transferred to jobs and further / higher education.

    Policy recommendations;
    1. Move away from govt tech policy obsession with e-service delivery
    2. Access now means more than connectivity it means access to technology for life
    3. Digital is the carrier but information is the message; making sense of information in a networked world is a key inclusion issue
    4. We need to flip curriculums using inclusive pedagogies and develop appropriate CPD for teachers helping them to design learning environments
