This publication contains the fourth report of the Adult Social Inclusion in a Digital Environment - Exchange of Good Practices, ERASMUS+ project number 2019-1-PL01-KA204- 065689.
The fourth report presents a desk research about “DIGITAL SOCIAL INCLUSION” carried out by ASIDE consortium and contains:
Accessing and using information and communication technologies is a topic that has gained even more importance with the conditions brought by the pandemic, and it impacts individuals and the community as a whole. Technology is the tool for a digitally inclusive community in terms of economic and workforce development. It also enhances education, healthcare, civic participation, and public safety.
A digitally inclusive community requires the support and participation of all sectors including community-based organizations, public services, business world, policymakers, etc. Digitally included people will eventually become socially included. Therefore, people in disadvantaged groups such as less educated people, people with lower income, seniors, and people with disabilities should be provided with education services to become digitally included individuals in society. Actions taken to achieve these may vary from country to country; this report provides a summary of practices in different countries.
