Van Leeuwen, M. Cormican, K. and Munoz Duran, T. (2006) Measuring and benchmarking digital literacy strategies and efforts: the BENTLI project Proceedings of eChallenges Barcelona, Spain, 2006-10-25- 2006-10-27
There are numerous interesting strategies in place in Europe, a large majority of them initiated and executed by regional or local government institutions, more or less successful in addressing groups with a high risk of exclusion. At the moment these institutions can assess the impact of their strategies, but cannot compare the result of the analysis with other strategies, due to the lack of common definitions of the indicators used. The BENTLI project has addressed this problem by providing a methodology for impact assessment and a permanent place for benchmarking and collaboration for regional digital literacy strategies. This paper will present the main indicators and the results of the impact assessment realised in seven different European regions, providing access to a tool for analysis and impact assessment for digital literacy strategies in Europe.
