This project aims to promote the importance of lifelong learning, and uses the stories of ten adult learners from diverse backgrounds to highlight the benefits of further learning.

We have produced ten five-minute audio segments profiling these adult learners, as well as 12 shorter audio segments (one to two minutes in length) providing information on adult learning opportunities and promoting participation in further learning, available here.

Abstract
The growth of the internet and related technologies such as mobile phones, digital film and photography in the last decade has seen a substantial shift in the way young people communicate and share information. The role that information and communication technologies (ICT) may play and the impact they may have on the mental health and wellbeing of young people is not well understood and there are gaps in the evidence base surrounding the efficacy of mental health promotion and prevention initiatives that utilise technology. The Bridging the Digital Divide Project examines the potential use of ICT to promote social connectedness and civic engagement in young people experiencing marginalisation. This paper provides an overview of the project rationale and presents preliminary research that explores the barriers and enablers to implementing an ICT based project designed to promote civic engagement and social connectedness with young people experiencing marginalisation.
