We would like to share the link to the attached report with staff and also add a big thank you to Mark, Fatma and Jo who lead on many aspects of this project at Meadway.
The Pavilion has been part of this project working with the Carnegie Trust and our own press release is attached.
The summary of this work is as follows:
Not all young people have the basic digital skills needed to prosper in our online world. A digital world for all? explores the issues of digital exclusion amongst vulnerable young people. The #NotWithoutMe programme challenges the assumption that young people are ‘digital natives’ and have basic digital skills or access to learning opportunities. The report’s main findings are drawn from four, year-long pilot projects run across the UK The report provides a range of recommendations to help further develop innovative practice and policy interventions in this area
where a separate designed executive summary is also available. An extract of the work with The Pavilion and our press release are attached below
