Over 4 million Dutch citizens are unable to participate in today's digital society. From evaluating news and information to communicating with the government: citizens require increasing levels of digital literacy. Especially people from lower socioeconomic backgrounds run the risk of being excluded. This project studies what individual, technological and social factors support or prohibit people’s development of digital literacy.

Digitalization and datafication increasingly impact citizens’ everyday life. Understanding how ICT and media work and being able to deal with digital technologies have become prerequisites for citizenship and inclusion in the digital society. In the Digital Literacy Coalition, eightteen partners from science, business, the government and the educational and cultural sector research how digital literacy can be promoted in all layers of society.

Growing up with media: Digital literacy and media literacy in children
Media play an increasingly central role in the lives of growing children. Childcare providers, schools, and parents wonder what the consequences are and struggle with the question of how to deal with smartphones, social media, and gaming. This project investigates the individual, social, and technological factors that determine how children develop digital literacy and media literacy.
Consortium partner: SKSG
In this project, in cooperation with 13 leading Dutch news organizations, we study how digitalization enables and inhibits new habits and patterns of news consumption, and how news organisations can optimally cater to changing practices and preferences.
