Brief description The project aims to understand the effectiveness of digital inclusion interventions in schools. Digital inclusion is the ability to use and benefit from information and communication technologies. The project intends to conduct a large-scale study of the distribution and adaptation of digital practices across Indigenous and non-Indigenous low socio-economic schools. Drawing on a unique dataset and new theoretical insights into the success and failure of knowledge practices in schools, the project aims to then model user and network activity. The project intends to identify the key factors shaping digital inclusion and exclusion in schools, and to develop scenarios to inform future policy.
