If we are to successfully help people to develop Basic Digital Skills it is vital that we work collaboratively and share knowledge and resources as widely as possible. But it can be difficult to know where to start.
Go ON Local (BETA) is an online community toolkit and collaborative platform that helps people to connect, share and promote best practice around Basic Digital Skills.
Go ON Local provides an online hub for organisations to plan their digital skills programmes, promote and run initiatives, and evaluate and share their successes with the Go ON Local community and wider audiences. The platform is completely open and transparent so that all its members can learn from each other.
The platform is currently in Beta, and is being continually developed and improved. It already allows people to set up groups for collaborative working, promote local Basic Digital Skills events and share activities and programmes. It also includes an ‘Offers and Needs’ area, which acts as a virtual marketplace.
Resources are being added regularly and currently include topics such as: tips on how to get started, planning digital skills activities for individuals or groups, advice on how to measure and evaluate your work, and ideas for helping small businesses to develop the skills they need to help their organisations grow.
Wherever you are on your digital skills journey, Go ON Local provides the tools and resources to help you to help others. To discover more, visit www.go-on.co.uk/local
