eLearning Papers n° 19 (2010)

Please have a look at this issue of eLearning Papers.

Technology Enhanced Learning Against Social Exclusion

We are increasingly migrating into cyberspace. Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are part of our everyday life and permeate many activities, such as working environments, daily communications and relationships, handling of administrative affairs, etc. They have become a basic priority and a key driver in politics, economics and -more significantly for this issue- education. However, it is necessary to promote further digital equity in order to enhance social inclusion in/through this migrating process.
Today many agree that most conceptions of digital inequity or the so-called digital divide need to be reassessed, as the sole provision of hardware, software and Internet access is not a guarantee of eInclusion and enhanced social inclusion. In fact, we need to make sure that they are effectively integrated into communities, institutions and societies, and used by citizens in order to engage in meaningful social practices (Warschauer, 2003 ).
