    Interview of a French PIC’s coordinator: the PIC’s action towards vulnerable groups & the training solutions for e-facilitators

    December 5th, 2011

    Interview with Régine Roué, manager of an EPM (Espace Public Multimédia – Public Internet Centre) of Brest, Brittany, France

    Tuesday 25th October

    We got in touch with Ms Régine Roué, coordinator of the PIC situated in Kérourien, a suburb quarter of Brest, which is considered by the local government as an “urban sensitive area”[1] of Brest, notably because of its high rate of unemployment.

    Since 2003, Régine invests lots of energy welcoming people of her quarter in the online centre, and draws bridges with local services to improve people’s accompaniment.

    Active in her neighborhood as well as outside thanks to partnership projects set up with other PICs and local services, she feels also concerned by issues of digital intermediaries, and by the role of e-facilitators in the accompaniment of vulnerable groups. In fact, Régine took part in the experimentation of the VET4e-I pilot online training that occurred in last spring 2011, led within the project’s experimentation phase, and which purpose was notably to highlight the role of e-facilitators for social inclusion.

    VET4e-I team present at the ePractice Workshop on e-Inclusion, Brussels (12th October)

    October 26th, 2010

    Our participation to the workshop was both for dissemination and exploitation reasons. And indeed it has been useful to disseminate the main project contents and to check whether the emerging profile of the “efacilitator for social inclusion” put forward by the Leonardo VET 4 e-I project has a “sense” in a European context. Has it a potential Europe-wide? After this workshop it is possible to respond “yes”, especially because the role of the different “intermediaries” (amongst them the “eFacilitator for Social Inclusion”) has appeared to be crucial in terms of social and labour inclusion and for implementing social initiatives Europe-wide. In addition to that, in the final list of recommendations it appears the need to build a European framework to support the identification and recognition of the new emerging profiles in the “intermediaries of ICT” area, as well as to certify the competences and reduce the gaps acquired by these professionals.

    VET4e-I project at ICICI conference: how Web 2.0 can “connect” people at risk

    October 25th, 2010

    The ICICI focuses on innovations in the field of technology use. The paper of Christoph Kaletka and Bastian Pelkan, members of Sfs TU-DO,  underlines, that Web 2.0 is not a new technology, but can be seen as new way of using technology. This new way of usage empowers people with low ICT-skills to use ICT. The very simple usage of Web 2.0-applications can be used to connect special target groups to the online world. Vet4e-I is given as one example, how Web 2.0 in telecenters are used to train “disconnected” people.
