What do we mean by digital inclusion?
Digital inclusion is about ensuring people are able to use the internet and online technologies to meet their needs. This includes:
Infrastructure – being able to afford or have access to a device (whether a mobile phone, tablet or computer), as well as being able to afford or have access to the internet through broadband, Wi-Fi or mobile data.
Skills – having the ability, confidence and digital skills to use digital devices and the internet. –
Accessibility – having access to services that are designed to meet users' needs, including for individuals with disabilities that require assistive technology to get online.
News & Events
Digibus project - postponed to autumn 2021 IT Schools Africa has been in touch with us to say that due to unforeseen delays, the launch of their exciting Digibus project in Charlton Kings on 26th August is postponed until the Autumn. We are informed that there have been some technical issues in designing the power management system and that the initial conversion work has taken longer than initially thought. The good news is that the conversion from bus to digital lab is now fully underway, with a projected completion date of the end of September. Local residents will then have the opportunity to sign up and make the most of digital technology in 1 -1 sessions and small group workshops. IT Schools Africa has sent us their sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused by this delay. They look forward to welcoming our project volunteers and the public aboard the Digibus, once the bus is ready and road tested to 'go live' in Charlton Kings. Details of the revised schedule will be confirmed by Digibus later this month and posted on our website. For any queries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
