The importance of being digitally connected has been highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many groups, including homeless people have found themselves unable to access key services due to lack of access to devices and data. The charity Crisis will hand out 2,500 devices and data packages to homeless people across Britain in order to address this issue as well as reduce isolation and loneliness.
Evidence Digests present information on Digital Inclusion trends and outcomes in an easily digestible form. They act as a guide to conversations between those delivering Digital Inclusion projects and those who wish to learn from them where both can share in an understanding of what the evidence tells us, why and how it should be measured.
In this issue, we explore evidence of older people’s digital inclusion.
In this newly produced video, we explain the MEDICI approach to Good Practice evaluation and its importance in enhancing replicability.
On 2nd July at 2:00 p.m., during its first e-week, the EUTOPIA project will hold a joint online conference on digital inclusion.
In Session 2 of the conference, focused on ‘Problems and solutions for digital inclusion’, the Scientific Director of the MEDICI project Dr Joe Cullen (Tavistock Institute) – will present the Digital Inclusion Atlas.
The conference will be broadcast on the EUTOPIA YouTube channel.
