How do we engage “missing” learners / those experiencing digital exclusion? What could we do?

We need to:

  • identify who is in need
  • do effective and appropriate publicity to reach them
  • go to where they are, and where they feel comfortable being engaged and learning
  • using peer cascade techniques: engaging with the bolder members of a community first and letting the more hesitant see that it is an enjoyable and useful activity.
  • be patient and modest in our expectations

    Indeed,

    We could also maybe find out why people are digitally excluded?e.g. Is it due to a lack of awareness? or have they chosen to avoid (up to a point) the use of Information technology?
