About this event

Background

In our second workshop on Ideation on 20 August, 47 participants from different sectors came together to brainstorm ideas around three Challenge Statements to improve digital inclusion for the 51,100 households living in public rental flats in Singapore.

These 3 statements are:

🌐 How might we ensure that public rental flat residents can access quality Internet connectivity in a conducive environment?

💻 How might we support public rental flat residents to acquire digital skills and attitudes to enjoy a better quality of life?

💸 How might we support public rental flat residents to navigate online spaces safely and build their resilience against online harms?

In total, 10 work-groups were formed, with ideas ranging from creating a community network of caregivers and resource persons to guide children on using technology for learning to using games to help children from low-income families learn digital skills.

This workshop is part of the Digital Inclusion Listening Living Labs (L3) initiative launched by A Good Space.

When we were all forced by the pandemic to go online to learn, work and stay connected, many were cut-off from such access due to the lack of Internet connectivity, devices or digital literacy, especially those from low-income communities.

In the last two years, there have been various efforts to help to bridge this 'digital divide' but these issues will persist even after the pandemic, how can we do more?

The L3 is a multi-year program where we will gather multi-sector stakeholders who care about digital inclusion (e.g. businesses, academics, non-profit organizations, persons with lived experience, etc) to listen to each other and ideate solutions to bridge the digital divide.

This L3 is currently stewarded by leaders representing different sectors within low-income communities, including:

  • Mr Johann Annuar, Executive Director, Engineering Good
  • Ms Ruth Tan, Executive Director, South Central Community FSC
  • Ms Joyce Teo, Executive Director, Community Foundation Singapore
  • Ms Elaine Loo, Director, Service Strategy & Innovation, NCSS
  • Dr Natalie Pang, Senior Lecturer & Deputy Head of Department, NUS
  • Dr Carol Soon, Senior Research Fellow, IPS
