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.
