The SoRuraLL! project aims to investigate the potential for enhanced lifelong learning offered by social networking tools and platforms to those living in geographically and socio-economically disadvantaged rural areas.
State-of-the-art widespread ICT networking tools and platforms have the potential to enable individuals to enhance their social networking, and in this way, potentially also enhance their learning. Groups at risk of exclusion may benefit from such technologies by getting the means for connecting themselves to public services, learning and civic engagement.
Experimental learning approaches will be developed and implemented, examining the potential offered by these new trends and tools for the alleviation of the disadvantage suffered by such populations in Europe through the enhancement of opportunities for effective and meaningful lifelong learning. Several technological solutions will be tried in the various sectors of lifelong learning, both formal (school, higher education, VET, adult education) and informal.
Options for citizens’ access to the digital resources will also be examined, making use of good practice examples in areas of work such as the operation of telecenters in disadvantaged areas, the use of satellite broadband in remote rural areas, as well as other open and distant access approaches.
