Mapping the digital gap - background paper: project objectives, context and methods
|Mapping the digital gap: background paper||1.01 MB|
The Mapping the Digital Gap research project seeks to address the lack of longitudinal data on digital inclusion levels across remote First Nations communities in Australia. It aims to generate the most detailed account to date of the distribution of digital inclusion and the uses of digital services, including news and media across First Nations communities.
Working with local research partners in up to 12 remote and outer regional communities over four years (2021–2024), the project will track changes in digital inclusion levels over time and inform the development and evaluation of appropriate local strategies for improving digital inclusion capabilities and services, enabling informed decision-making in remote Indigenous communities.
This working paper sets out the project’s approach, covering its main objectives, policy and research context, methodology and research sites.
