The Mobile Lab
It is a misconception that all young people by virtue of their age and generation are technologically literate. Digital literacy, computer skill development, internet access and its use are closely aligned through economic and cultural factors and those living on the margins, even in a technology rich society, are being left behind. Our partners in this project tell us that the young women accessing services in their shelters and drop-in centres have missed out on opportunities to learn technology skills.
The iSisters Mobile Learning Lab Project offers 21st Century technology skills to young women in an effort to help them to move forward with their lives and lead them toward further training, education and employment.
