POW! “Keeping IT in the Family” Comic a winner!!
7th June 2011
Yesterday Raj Mack attended the award ceremony for the European Award of Excellence “City for Children” held in Stuttgart as part of
their Annual Conference Cities for Children where the innovative Keeping IT in the Family initiative was named as winner in category 2 (training for parents and educators). Led by Digital Birmingham, the initiative was created in 2008 as a way of bridging the digital divide – getting children within some of the city’s less affluent areas to help teach their older relatives about how to use computers and other modern technologies for everyday tasks.
In winning the award, Birmingham has beaten stiff competition from across Europe, particularly Munich and Nis and it’s a real boost to see Keeping IT in the Family recognised in this way. It has proven to be an excellent scheme that has passed knowledge across the generations as well as being transferable to other towns and cities in the UK and beyond.
