Welsh digital inclusion research shows access to the internet is not a magic bullet

LASA ICT E-Bulletin (June 2012)

The Welsh Government devised a programme of research, including analysis of national survey data, mapping of internet use rates at neighbourhood level, and case studies of older people to understand the lived experiences of those affected by digital inclusion policies.

Findings revealed, according to the LSE Media Policy Project (PDF 2pp) that internet access alone will not raise participation in education, impact the job market or civic life.
