Digital Inclusion

Digital inclusion is about having the access, skills, and motivation to effectively use ICTs. Governments at all levels — local, national, and regional — develop digital inclusion policies to ensure that all people benefit from new technologies. Common barriers include affordability, relevancy, and privacy concerns, among others. Digital inclusion, in policy and practice, is a posture that acknowledges the importance of ICTs and addresses the needs of “excluded” individuals and groups to benefit from ICTs. TASCHA’s digital inclusion research informs public policy and develops resources for use by public and private sector actors. What tools can assist public institutions such as libraries better achieve inclusion goals? How can cross-sectoral partnerships contribute to digital inclusion agendas?
