Empowering language minorities through technology : which way to go? /

by Dooly, Melinda | eLearning Papers.

Publisher: Barcelona, Spain 2010Description: PDF.Other title: eLearning papers ; no. 19.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2010Summary: The term 'Information Age' has been applied to the current era we now live in, based on the fact that technology and Internet are continuously changing the way people work, learn, spend their leisure time and interact with one another. At the same time, access to this means of interaction is not always equal, whether due to lack of experience, knowledge or economic access. The rate of these changes, and a feeling of uncertain consequences- can create a sense of uncontrollably rapid social changes and possible social fragmentation. In the face of this, education stakeholders must seriously consider how schooling can confront these challenges. This article will first give a brief overview of how the notion of social cohesion has been used in social and educational policies, focusing especially on two central points that emerge: social equality and education as a nexus for social cohesion. Next, the text looks at how education can undertake the challenge of eliminating social inequality and promoting social cohesion, followed by an analysis of one potentially disadvantaged group: speakers of minority languages. Perceptions of minority language groups in the EU are discussed and a general outline of potential educational disadvantages and social exclusion they may face is broached.Availability: (1)

In representing these needs with integrity FECCA seeks to help inform and strengthen the implementation of the whole of government Access and Equity Framework.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Equality, entitlements and localism /

by McCarvill, Phil | Institute for Public Policy Research.

Publisher: London, U.K. Institute for Public Policy Research 2010Description: 10 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2010Summary: This paper explores the relationship between localism and notions of equality of access and outcomes for a range of groups and communities. The specific focus throughout is on the needs and experiences of those disabled people, ethnic minorities, older and younger people who are economically and socially excluded and/or currently experience differential outcomes from key public services. The central argument at the heart of this paper is that genuine localism will only be achieved if Whitehall believes that it can trust key parts of the public sector and local communities to deliver effective, accessible and equitable services for all.Availability: (1)

Creating accessible journeys /

by Victorian Council of Social Service.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Victorian Council of Social Service 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: July 2011 Bibliography p. 55 Appendices pp. 52-55Summary: This report has been produced by the Victorian Council of Social Service (VCOSS) to examine the progress towards improving the public transport system in Victoria to meet the needs of a greater variety of users, including people with diverse mobility requirements. It builds upon information collated for our previous report of the Accessible Public Transport Watch Project, which surveyed the mobility needs of people with disabilities. This report uses information from that report, combined with interviews with public transport agencies, the results of a public consultation forum on accessible transport, and relevant academic publications to draw its conclusions. While the total transport system also includes private motor vehicles, taxis, aviation, shipping, active transport modes and community transport services, this report concentrates upon land-based scheduled public transport passenger services and related pedestrian movement in Victoria: i.e. buses, trains, trams and coaches.Availability: (1)
