Digidak wants to contribute to building a 'learning' or 'smart' city or municipality and to enhance the resilience of citizensthrough low threshold access to the use of modern technology. We focus in particular on those who experience the digital threshold and rely on a unique, finely meshed local effect in neighborhoods and quarters.
Questions and needs related to digital applications are an accessible and neutral way of bringing people together. On the one hand, Digidak contributes to strengthening sustainability, inclusion, solidarity and democratic awareness in society, by strengthening people who are at risk of not being able to participate in an increasingly digitized society. On the other hand, participants reinforce each other's participation in the social and cultural life and in their shared citizenship because all Digidak practices are shaped through co-ownership. The open learning process ensures that "learning" is more and broader than acquiring digital skills. Social learning brings participants into a dependent relationship towards each other. By participating in the peer learning process, there is room for the following learning trajectories:
- Learning to deal with disagreements
- Dare to speak in front of a group
- Awareness of the own value framework
- Communication with people from different target groups
- Learning about lesson structure and preparation
- Concrete digital skills
- Learning to transfer information in an accessible manner
- Learning to commit to and propagate engagement
- Learning about the social map and just referral
- Comitting to engagement together with people from your own neighborhood
The digital aspect is a neutral "excuse" to activate people in a fine-grained way to strengthen social cohesion. At the same time, Digidak practices are effectively based on increasing insight into the utility of digital applications.
