Digital Evolution Local Action

  1. 1. Our digital futures27 November 2012 Helen Milner CEO - Online Centres Foundation
  2. 2. LOCAL + TECHNOLOGY + SCALE
  3. 3. Technology can benefit us all Norah: Just one example • Since getting online, 78 year old Norah has lost weight and her diabetes has much improved • Her blood pressure has reduced significantly and her diabetes has improved • And her arthritis has all but disappeared – so Norah has begun learning to play the ukelele
  4. 4. But we could do with some help…• 88% of our network think they could be doing more with digital tools(survey responses from our most tech-savvy centres)• 78% of charity professionals think the sector will miss fundraising and income generating opportunities if it doesn’t engage fully with digital (Lasa)• 59% of charities said that they would require training and support to use social media(Go ON UK)
  5. 5. And people are making things, but how do we find out about it?
  6. 6. The question is not how we can use technology….…it’s what do we want to achieve and how can technology help us to achieve it?
  7. 7. Nyree is offering new services• Nyree Scott and her team support minority groups who speak different languages to improve their computer and internet “Using the latest technology means that real conversations can take place, and the technology gives people a real chance to exchange ideas and talk together a lot more easily.”
  8. 8. Nicola is measuring impact• Nicola Wallace-Dean knows how important it is to measure the impact of the work she does in her community “I needed a tool that would help me to monitor attitudes to see if they changed. I didn’t have the budget to spend on anything fancy, and didn’t want our events to become form filling sessions. I found a free tool which allowed me to track changes easily by asking six key questions. “
  9. 9. Kim &Blackpool CVS is saving moneyMost organisations are looking to save money – andBlackpool CVS is no different.“I looked at Google to help address problems we’d beenhaving with our server, which was costly to maintain. It’ssaved time and money, and has been particularly useful asanyone with an account can log in from any computer andsee what’s happening”
