Modern Class Divide
Digital exclusion has become the 21st century class divide, precluding people from financial, career, social & a myriad of other opportunities. The gap is deepening rather than widening as more government, banking & retail services go online & decrease their offline presence
What's (not) going on?
In Australia today 1 in 5 people have never accessed the internet & nearly 2 million households do not have an internet connection;. A 2012 WIP (World Internet Project) survey on Australia's online habits showed that internet access is directly linked to income; almost four in 10 households earning less than $30,000 a year said they couldn't afford home broadband. These households were also found to be less likely to access government services or material online & regard the internet as a frustrating piece of technology.
The Digital Divide in Australia
So what's the plan?
Mobile Digital Training
all/IN will provide mobile digital training to community groups, clubs or any interested organisation, to teach digital literacy. Using tablets & mobile broadband the training can be offered wherever suits the organisation. This training will be paid for by the individuals, organisations or funded through government programs. The training will cost $45pp for 1.5hrs, a competitive rate.
all/IN's goal is to not only increase
digital literacy & participation, but also
as defined by The City of Chicago,
'universal, meaningful, participation in technology'
all/IN will develop a training program that:
teaches tablet basics
teaches digital literacy
empowers people to use technology like a 'digital native'
allows time for people to ask the 'dumb' questions without them feeling dumb
all/IN intends to partner with an organisation that already have developed, or is developing, suitable software
With the profits from the mobile digital training, all/IN will train over 1 school term, with the aim to digitally empower, single parents & equip them with a digital tablet & mobile broadband, that will be theirs to keep once they have completed the training
all/IN aims to partner with local councils to best meet community needs.
all/IN is currently working with Moonee Valley Council to develop a pilot program. Moonee Valley Council covers an economically & culturally diverse area with an aging population & over 4000 single parent families. The Council is adopting more e-services & will need the community to be digitally literate for a universally beneficial outcome

Why the Crunch?
I passionately believe that the internet is a power for good, I have a great network of mentors & peers, as well as a wide range of experiences, The Crunch will give me the guidance, & confidence, to pull these strengths together. The Crunch will also temper my natural impatience to get things done, & ensure the devil that is in the detail is paid the attention it deserves! The Crunch warm up enabled me to refine my idea into a project that is much more workable & achievable, to go through the whole process will create a Digital Inclusion tour de force!
