New Zealand’s Digital Inclusion Challenge: Beyond Computers in Homes
30/5/2017: 20/20 Trust has outlined its view of the future for digital inclusion in New Zealand and its development and piloting of, and transition to, a new approach in its work for digital inclusion. The new approach retains the core elements of Computers in Homes that have worked well in the past – local community engagement and building digital confidence – and offers greater flexibility in how the needs of specific communities are met.
Refugee advisers use Computers in Homes…
to help newly arrived refugee families. They say it:
has proved to be enormously successful
has successfully removed every barrier
“it is a delight to observe parents in the community, who have few literacy skills and who speak no English, start developing confidence and enjoyment in using their computers”
Community partnership delivers
Computers in Homes is a partnership of the 20/20 Trust with schools, families, trainers, technicians, computer refurbishers, community organisations, government and business.
