Learning to Cope with Digital Technology

  There is a widespread assumption, that everyone uses modern interactive technology and appreciates its liberating effects. However, according to recent reports, ten million people in UK alone have never been on-line. Whilst four million of these people belong to disadvantaged backgrounds, including unemployed (38%), families with children (19%) or people in advanced age (39%), further six million describe the World Wide Web, as not suitable for them (www.raceonline2012.org). Despite that, people are often thrown into using digital technology; they face involuntary or even mandated use of it. This project aim to establish and document the range of strategies people adopt whilst learning to cope with these circumstances.
