Pilot Digital Inclusion

The Digital Inclusion Pilot is a collaboration between 18 societal partners who joined together in November 2018 in the Digital Literacy Coalition. In three research projects, we examine what are the conditions and barriers to digital inclusion from the perspective of citizens, and explore how digital inclusion can be promoted.

Digital literacies and digital inclusion of (digital-) low-literate citizens

Pilot Digital Inclusion Groningen

This report reports on findings from the Digital Inclusion Pilot conducted in Groningen in 2019-2021. The pilot is a result of the collaboration between the University of Groningen, the municipality of Groningen, Alfa College and the Stichting Kinderopvang Stad Groningen (SKSG). We explore four work packages in this report, focusing on a research framework for digital literacy and inclusion, the development of digital literacy within the family and in education, and the central question of what factors promote or hinder the development of digital literacy within formal and informal education.
