The Digital Literacy community announces the organisation of a workshop on October 12, 2010 in Brussels. This workshop will aim to encourage the sharing of good practice in the area of digital competences of intermediaries and social actors working in the field of economic, social and/or digital inclusion of groups at risk of exclusion such as the elderly, disabled, migrants, youth, unemployed and low educated people.

In addition, the workshop aims to identify and disseminate: ICT-enabled solutions (training, resources, tools, etc) for digital competences of social inclusion actors; good practices and current research carried out in this area; initiatives and funding programmes at local, national or European level.

Therefore, the focus will be on the necessity to improve the accessibility of ICT products and services by intermediaries and social actors and its application to their jobs.

The topics expected to be raised at the workshop include:

  • Carers' digital literacy and targeted online training and job support
  • Intermediaries training/eLearning on digital competences and eInclusion
  • ICT tools and e-Skills to support end users looking for a job
  • ICT enabled acquisition of management and operational competences

Particular attention should be paid to two main categories of social inclusion actors/ intermediaries who support groups at risk of social exclusion or needing support (e.g. dependent people, elderly, migrants, youngsters in difficulty, unemployed, lowly educated):

a) social inclusion actors/ intermediaries providing care and assistance to the referred social groups;

b) social inclusion actors/ intermediaries facilitating the learning, skilling and/or employability of the referred social groups.

Who should attend?

The workshop is open to public and private social care organisations, digital training institutions, NGOs and "third sector" organisations working in the field of eInclusion or social inclusion, researchers, ICT developers and others involved or interested in the topics indicated above.

Those interested in speaking should register to the workshop and submit  an original and concise proposal, which should be based on one or more real cases (see call for participation in the section 'presentations & documents' below), by September 13, 2010.
