Assessing the economic benefits of digital inclusion /

by Digital Inclusion Initiative.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Infoxchange Australia 2009Description: p. 16.Online Access: Electronic copy Summary: Constrained by cost or a lack of knowledge, and often both a significant number of disadvantaged people are missing out on the basic tools that engender participation in modern life. This 'digital divide' has a significant, negative impact on the communities it affects, by limiting their access to information, employment and social networks. On the upside, however, bridging this divide has genuine, measurable benefits for individuals and the broader community. This paper demonstrates the scale of these benefits, and makes a strong case for expanding the process of 'digital inclusion' to other disadvantaged areas of Australia.Availability: (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: 'http://www.sprc.unsw.edu.au/ASPC2005/papers/Paper200.doc' 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).
