Publisher: Caulfield East, Vic. Centre for Community Networking Research, Monash University & Victorian Council of Social Service 2010Description: 28 p. : ill.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: March 2010Summary: "Doing IT Better is a three-year project to build information and communications technology (ICT) capacity in the Victorian community services sector. Community service organisations like government and commercial organisations — are now dependent on ICT systems to support basic organisational functions and service delivery. But limited financial resources and a shortage of ICT skills and know-how in the sector have left most agencies struggling. Improved ICT capacity will enable improve organisational efficiencies, enabling more resources to be directed where it really counts: supporting vulnerable and disadvantaged Victorians via the direct service work and advocacy that is the community services sector's core business." -- Doing IT Better websiteAvailability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Information, e-government and opportunity : a public housing estate online. /

by Meredyth, Denise | Hopkins, Liza | Ewing, Scott.

Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. Social Policy Research Centre. University of New South Wales 2005Description: PDF.Notes: URL: '' Checked: 6/10/2008 10:39:08 AM Status: Live Details: HTTP status 200 - Usual success responseSummary: This paper summarises a four year study of the effects on 800 low-income and multiethnic households of access to free networked computers, training and information resources. The question was whether these low-income households would make use of online health, housing education and employment services, as distinct from using the resources to play games or seek entertainment. Results suggest that, although what people went looking for online varied, tenants could and did seek information on social services and did explore government websites and the resources of community agencies. This finding emerges from a study drawing on focus groups, interviews, surveys and the analysis of tenants' patterns of network use. Patterns of use show convincing evidence that the benefits of the wired community initiative include the encouragement of informal learning and self-directed information-seeking, as well as the more effective delivery of publicly and privately provided social services. The example has broader implications for debates on social partnerships, community-building and electronic government.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Older Victorians online : a community survey exploring the usage patterns of older Victorians online /

by Crawshaw, Kate | Council on the Ageing (Victoria) | Hendy, Sue.

Publisher: Collingwood, Vic. Ellis Jones Consulting 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: A collaborative project between COTA Victoria and Ellis Jones. March 2012Summary: Ellis Jones and Council on the Ageing (COTA) Victoria recently collaborated on a research study to test commonly held assumptions. The results remind us how quickly everyone is adopting online technologies. What may have been correct 12 months ago may be an assumption today. In an environment of rapid change affecting both industry and government, online community engagement has become increasingly important to ensure stakeholder participation. Considerable research has been gathered on seniors' internet use and we know that their personal access to and use of the internet continues its steady trajectory. However, there is little investigation on how they employ web 2.0 tools, such as those found on social media platforms, in their daily lives. Tools, which in recent times, have provided a platform to so many communities which previously struggled to have their opinions heard. 51% of Australia's population is on Facebook and we do not consider seniors to be a part of this subset. There is an absence of detailed study around their participation in online discussions. This absence 'assumes' that they do not use social media and therefore will not participate in online community consultation activities.Availability: (1)
