Buffering (42%): Overcoming digital exclusion to support learning and improve wellbeing at home
October 7 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
A workshop led by Children’s University Scotland on solutions to support children’s learning and wellbeing for families with limited/no digital access at home.
Many families have found supporting children’s learning at home extremely challenging. This situation is even tougher for families lacking the digital access and tools that many schools and other learning providers require or assume. The digital divide impacts young people’s lives every day; it isolates and increases loneliness, limits contact with friends, family and teachers, and restricts opportunities for leisure and learning. It is no surprise that children’s wellbeing is suffering. It also puts pressures on families to provide materials that they simply cannot afford.
Online solutions to support learning and wellbeing work for some families, but so many young people are still missing out without that vital digital access.
Join Children’s University Scotland and Poverty Alliance in a workshop that will consider what we can do to support digitally excluded young people and families to improve their wellbeing at home and to support wider learning without the need for internet access.
