"On 21 March 2006, the Federal Labor Opposition announced in a media release that a Labor Government would require all Internet Service Providers ( ISPs ) to implement a mandatory Internet filtering/blocking system. This proposal was retained as policy by the Rudd Labor government elected on 24th November 2007. Further information about the policy is in Labor s Plan for Cyber-safety released prior to the election. Few concrete details have been announced since the election, but early in January 2008 Minister Conroy confirmed that the policy remained in place. EFA and other concerned groups are currently attempting to obtain additional information. EFA is strongly opposed to this policy.." NB This analysis was last updated in March 2008. An ongoing site, No Internet Censorship for Australia is also maintained by Electronic Frontiers Australia in opposition to the policy." -- EFA website.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

Mobile and broadband technologies for ameliorating social isolation in older people /

by Vetere, Frank | University of Melbourne. Institute for a Broadband-Enabled ociety | Kulik, Lars | Pedell, Sonja.

Publisher: Parkville, Vic. University of Melbourne. Institute for a Broadband-Enabled Society 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2012Summary: This project aimed to examine how communication technologies can be used to help ameliorate social isolation for older people who live independently in their own homes. We provided a group of older people and their care managers with touch tablet devices (iPads), and a new iPad application ('Enmesh' ? Engagement through Media Sharing), which was purpose-built for this study. Participants used the Enmesh application to exchange photographs and messages. By creating and sharing content, the older people in our study were able to build social connections in order to help alleviate their experience of social isolation. Participants used the application for a period of ten weeks. During that time we conducted interviews and observations to gauge their experiences of using the technology. Overall, the results of the trial were very positive. For the older people in our study, the ability to record and share photographs and messages had a positive effect on participants' wellbeing and played a role in alleviating feelings of social isolation.Availability: (1)

Nonprofits and social media : it's not opitional /

by Ventureneer.

Publisher: New York, NY Ventureneer 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 4 October 2010Summary: Most social media tools are free, but the time to manage them isn't. Nonprofits, large and small, are well aware of this cost and cite it as a major roadblock to using social media. Another obstacle: Nonprofits have been preconditioned to view technology as expensive and difficult. These descriptions were accurate at one time but not now. Low-cost resources abound to help ? and the people you want to reach expect nonprofits, like for-profits, to make social media a cornerstone of their outreach efforts. It's the 21st century. People passionate about a cause and eager to bring about social change connect through social media. It is imperative that nonprofits learn how to become visible in social media by using the right medium for the task at hand. In 2010, Ventureneer and Caliber conducted a survey of nonprofits to elicit data from which best practices could be developed to guide nonprofits in initiating or revising their social media marketing efforts. What works, what doesn't? For which purposes does each social medium work? By answering these questions, we can improve the cost-efficiency and effectiveness of social media by nonprofits. Whether you already use social media or you're new to the game, this report is for you. Social media are a low-resource (but not a 'no resource') way to connect through trusted networks to new supporters of all kinds. Social media are the e-version of word-of-mouth advertising which, as everyone knows, is the best advertising you can get.Availability: (1)

Older Australians and the Internet: bridging the digital divide /

by National Seniors Australia Productive Ageing Centre.

Publisher: Braddon, A.C.T National Seniors Australia Productive Ageing Centre 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: September 2011 Includes referencesSummary: In recent years, the internet has become an essential tool for living. Whether making bookings, receiving updates on superannuation or shares, downloading university lectures or filling in government forms, the internet is the first option for more and more Australians. More people use internet-based communications to stay in touch with friends and family quickly and cheaply. Health and business services are increasingly migrating to the web, seeking lower costs and easier access. It is a profound shift in the way we live, but some older Australians are finding it hard to keep up. Older people with low internet skills are unable to conduct business or access important services over the web. They can be isolated from their community and family at a time in their lives when feeling connected is very important. In short, they are often on the wrong side of 'the digital divide'.Availability: (1)

Older people and the internet : towards a 'system map' of digital exclusion /

by Berry, Richard | International Longevity Centre UK.

Publisher: London, U.K. International Longevity Centre 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2011 Bibliography : p. 15Summary: Older people are significantly less likely to have access to the internet than the general population. According to recent research findings, 79 per cent of households below the state pension age have internet access, while only 37 per cent of households above the state pension age do so. This difference gives rise to the notion of the digital divide, between those who enjoy access to the internet and those who are excluded. There have been a number of attempts to widen access to the internet, among older people and other excluded groups. There are ongoing upgrades of Britain's technological infrastructure, increasing internet capacity throughout the country. There are initiatives to counter the financial barriers to inclusion, by providing subsidised equipment or free internet access, in people's homes or in public places. The state has also supported the provision of training in ICT skills over a number of years.Availability: (1)
