I’m working in a busy public library in Denmark where we work with the community in lots of different ways. One of my main tasks is to help bridge the digital divide by offering and supporting learning in the digital environment. In the end of 2014 all public letters to private persons in Denmark become digital. Many elderly people do not have the skills to use a computer and they will probably get a wild card and still be able to get their papers in physical form. My concern is: How do we make people more familiar or confident with digitization? … And how do we convince the younger people that it is important knowledge?
We focus more and more on learning and supporting learning in libraries. Which topics could be interesting and important in a library teaching lesson?
