People with disabilities face significant barriers to access training in digital literacy which is essential for education and employment. Furthermore, the traditional model of delivering digital literacy skills to people with disabilities through the provision of centre-based training is becoming unsustainable, due to a massive increase in the demand for digital skills and rapid changes in online and mobile technologies.
DICE aims to help people with disabilities build digital literacy skills needed to transition from VET centre training to mainstream education and employment. DICE will create an online community based on a peer support model, promoted and sustained by Digital Inclusion Champions.
