Andalucía Compromiso Digital is a volunteering project to foster the use of Information and Communication technologies amongst the Andalusian citizenship, hence, an ICT volunteering project.
On March 27 to 29, 2009, the first Encuentro Andaluz de Voluntariado Digital (Andalusian Conference on ICT Volunteering) will take place in Jaén (Spain) to reflect about the past and draw applied strategies for the future.
I have been asked to make a speech about the impact of the Network Society in our daily lives, especially in everything related to access to knowledge and how this fact determines participation and engagement. I am to frame two following speeches by Juan Sebastián Fernández Prados on volunteering in the Network Society, and Pilar Jericó on personal skills for volunteers to network with people in risk of e-exclusion, thus why I’m standing on a quite theoretical level.
My speech has two main parts:
- A first part on development, network society and the different natures of the digital divide.
- And a second part on the role of knowledge and digital literacy in determining e-inclusion and, most important, social exclusion.
- Citation and downloads: Access to knowledge and digital divide.
- Citation and downloads: Acceso al conocimiento y la brecha digital.
- For a totally practical level, please see Telecenter 2.0 and Community Building
