Digitise the Nation is on the move!
Three years ago, the IIA set out to “Digitise the Nation”. It was a lofty ambition that would take time and tenacity. Time has been flying by but we’ve proven our commitment as Digitise the Nation enters its third year.
Digitise the Nation is based on our belief that the internet is for everyone, that there is no ‘digital economy’ but rather that there is society of which we are all part and that internet technology is about community, inclusivity, communication and access.
Over the past two years, Digitise the Nation has supported grandparents in Drimnagh speaking to their grandchildren in Tokyo and New Zealand over the internet, the children of St. Audeons School learned from animators how their favourite cartoons were made and parents and children worked together to search for clues and treasure as part of an online treasure hunt.
Digitise the Nation 2012
Digitise the Nation, with the support of our sponsors is now ready to go on tour. We’ve hired a lorry and we’ll be on the road from July 17th, 2012. We’re inviting everyone to get on board to get online. We’ll be training adults across all ages and all locations on everything they need to know about connecting, discovering and dealing with the day to day of news, jobs, deals, saving and shopping, securely!
“Digitise the Nation” is more than a campaign; it is a bright-orange-lorry-community-training-road-trip!
