A leap in technology development brought major changes to the society. The lack of digital literacy skills is becoming a major problem. Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has carried out a research and revealed that even though the general competences of the population in the Baltic region are sufficient, problem-solving skills invoking technologies are less than the average.
With a purpose to reduce this problem, 4 libraries from Utena, Zarasai, Daugavpils and Preili joined their forces for new technology projecttask is to adapt different practices the libraries have and use that as a base to create new public service – Family Digital Activity Hubs (DigiHubs). DigiHubs would serve as technology cognition centers to people of various age, gender and social status.
When creating the new public service, it is planned to:
Use unique experience of all four libraries to create a DigiHub model;
Purchase and install innovative virtual reality, movement recognition, iBeacon, robots and 3D programming technologies;
Create interactive content based on the existing heritage and local lore resources:
Train DigiHubs‘ personnel on providing new services – assign technology mentors;
Create a uniformed learning in DigiHubs methodology.
