Confidence in using digital technologies
Ideally Australians should be able to safely and confidently use the internet and digital technologies as part of their everyday activity – whether that’s running errands like shopping or banking, or keeping in touch with friends and family.
Those who are less experienced may be fearful of the unfamiliar or lacking confidence with digital technologies. Others may need to balance the benefits of building community through online interaction, and in-person support networks.
Why the contribution is important
Our ability to make the most of digital technologies depends on the extent to which Australians can safely and confidently interact online. At the core of this is trust in the companies, services, people and data we transact or communicate with. Community education and digital literacy is key.
- How can we improve confidence for those that are less confident using digital technologies?
- How should we balance the role digital technologies play in our lives, by staying connected while maintaining strong face-to-face support networks?
