Description of conference workshops

Workshop A - DLit2.0 and special target groups (e. g. homeless people, migrants)

Workshop leader: Aga Khan Foundation, NIACE

DLit2.0 address adult learners in special social situations which isolate them from taking part in social life. Web 2.0 can help to overcome these barriers and support special target groups with getting into contact with other persons or services in order to facilitate their everyday lives. The following questions will be discussed in the workshop:

  • Which applications can help special target groups to improve their daily lives and raise their social participation?
  • Which experiences did social institutions / libraries have when promoting the digital literacy of special target groups?
  • In which contexts can multipliers support the digital literacy of special target groups?

The following questions will be discussed in this workshop:

  • Which applications can help senior citizens to improve their daily lives and raise their social participation?
  • Which experiences did social institutions / libraries have when promoting the digital literacy of senior citizens?
