Get Online Week 2011 in Romania

EOS Foundation formed a digital alliance that carried out the campaign in Romania. Over 500 telecentres, schools and libraries were the Romanian heroes of a succesful national campaign. Thousands of teachers got online for the first time during the week, as activities have been correlated with larger efforts of the Romanian Ministry of Education. At the end of the campaign, the Get Online counter showed that 16.961 Romanians had become involved!

Gabi Barna, Chair of Telecentre-Europe and Director of EOS Foundation said:

“The people who visited telecentres during Get Online Week, will be being supported this week, and next week, and likely for a number of weeks to come. They started a journey of discovery about computers and the internet, which will lead them to benefit from better job prospects and wage premiums. They will have better social, community and civic connections, and personal economic savings and benefits to them, as well as macro-economic savings and benefits to their governments’ and to industry”.

Get Online Week 2011 in Russia

PH International with its Your Course: Digital Literacy (Tvoy Kurs) Program was the national coordinator for the Get Online Week in Russia. They have localized the campaign materials and developed recommendations for the Russian audience, which were used not only in Russia, but by a wide network of ICT-centres in Eurasia.

The event was promoted through the extensive network of PH partners and alumni and received a ready response – 40 organizations outside of YCDL network registered for a Get Online Week. As a result, the number of participants reached 6.020 people, which three times exceeds the planned target.

Out of all registered users, 35% were first time users, and out of all people trained during the campaign over 80% were first time users, hence we consider the event a big success. 58% of participants were women, 42% – men. Most of the registered votes came from students (41%) and… retired people (21%). Among the working groups the most active were representatives of the state/municipal sector (17%).

Get Online Week 2011 in Sweden

Digidel 2013 is a national campaign to rise digital inclusion in Sweden. Many partners are participating in activities aimed at reaching the objective of getting the 500.000 offline Swedes online by the end of 2013. Partners are offering help, education and inspiration.

Everybody can participate in the endeavours – individuals, NGO’s, authorities and companies. Libraries and adult education organisations cooperate effectively to make more people ‘go digital’. On www.digidel.se you can join the campaign as a partner or as an individual champion.

Get Online Week is a fantastic opportunity to raise the question about digital participation, both nationally and globally. During the campaign week of Get Online Week 2011 we brought together nine partners and Digidel 2013 received lots of media, especially locally, and was also acclaimed by TV.

Public education and libraries offered a wide range of Internet-related courses, workshops and lectures. For example people could try e-readers, surf boards or join a “dare to surf course.” People could also take part in lectures on software applications, “apps” and digital music creation.
