Get Online Week 2012 is a digital inclusion campaign on 26th-30th March in Telecentres: public internet centres in NGOs, libraries & education venues.
The campaign is organised by Telecentre-Europe AISBL supported by the European Commission and a number of international organisations, including Microsoft, Liberty Global, European Broadcasting Union and Telecentre.org.
Get online week 2012 will help people to get online, find work, learn new essential ICT skills, and get more out of life. It will bring together 5.000 telecentres in at least 50 countries across Europe, Eurasia and Africa to support at least 200.000 people in their online journeys. This year, the telecentre networks involved will use new learning products that will support the themes of intergenerational learning, youth employability, active aging, civic participation, social engagement and women in ICT.
Esplai Foundation, as a founding member and partner of Telecentre_Europe.org Community Telecentres Association of Spain, once again, is actively involved in preparing the 2012 GOW training will take place in all call centers of the Spanish network of telecentres.
In Spain, Esplai Foundation is the entity responsible for the training at national level, which is focused on improving employability through ICT, based in the European Key Competences for all (KC4all), doing it in cascade; in other words, first of all we are going to train facilitators and coordinators in order to show them some tools and guides to use during the GOW course.
After that, during the Get Online Week, facilitators will train end users at local level using these tools.
Our activities will be focused on promoting the improvement of the employability of people who come to the telecentre. We will do it using an ICT tool which was designed by Fundación Esplai in order to help facilitators to evaluate ICT competences of end users.

The KC4All final conference of the project took place on October 28th in Brussels, at Espace Moselle. The conference has witnessed the official launch of the Employment Toolkit, a packed series of online resources to improve employability and to provide guidance to users at a risk of exclusion from the workforce.
Telecentre-Europe co-hosted the event within their annual network gathering.
During the plenary session, Pedro Aguilera from Esplai Foundation, Spain (the project coordinator) first explained the importance of an online multilanguage employment toolkit. Then, Gabriel Rissola and Andrea Diaz from D-O-T, Spain presented the multi-country analysis performed through the project and Mara Jakobsone from LIKTA, Latvia showcased the pilot testing coordinated by her organisation.
To conclude, Elena Lanzoni from Interface3, Belgium explained the methodology used for building the employment toolkit.
During the workshop session that followed, Mara Jakobsone presented the project guidelines for new users and how to exploit & disseminate the employment toolkit. Andra Jakobsone from LIKTA demonstrated the handbook and Alina Zamfir from EOS, Romania explained the exploitation and valorisation plan.
At the end of the workshop session, Pedro Aguilera from Esplai Foundation, Spain lead the discussions regarding the adaptation of the toolkit in other languages, the cultural differences and the process for hosting other language versions on the project website. Gabriel Rissola from D-O-T, Spain informed the audience about available funding for national up-takings of the toolkit.
At the closing session, Pedro Aguilera summed up the next steps and actions to undertake with the European network of telecentres regarding the employment toolkit.
The first Digital Agenda Assembly took place in Brussels on 16th and 17th June 2011, being organized by the European Commission.
The Digital Agenda for Europe is the European Union’s road map for bringing the benefits of a digital society and economy to Europe’s citizens. But it can only deliver if all stakeholders are involved in assessing problems and identifying solutions.
The KC4All partnership had a strong representation during the event:
- a presentation of KC4all was delivered at the Workshop 20 “Digital Literacy and e-Inclusion” (17 June 2011) as a good example of partnership. Thanks to that, a potential British beneficiary was identified for the exploitation phase
- distribution of 100 brochures to participants
- distribution of 20 KC4all leaflets to participants at the breakout group on “e-Inclusion and Employability”
Dr. Bastian Pelka and Dr. Christoph Kaletka from Technical University of Dortmund will deliver a paper on the “First International Workshop on Social Innovation and Social Media (SISoM 2011)” on 21st July in Barcelona. They will speak about “Social media revisited. User generated content as a social innovation” and will place the KC4all outputs into the big picture of using web 2.0 for social inclusion.
