The Department of Digital Inclusion takes the lead in creating a society where all people enjoy the benefits of digital technologies by establishing an environment where all people can participate in the social and economic activities in the digital world without discrimination or exclusion.
We provide a comprehensive digital competency training service by selecting convenient facilities such as resident centers and libraries across the country as “digital learning places” so that all citizens can take courses ranging from training on basic competency required in daily life to practical learning, all offered near their residence.
We conduct surveys on the state of access to information including web, mobile applications, and kiosks and support legal and institutional improvement to make sure that the digitally vulnerable group is able to use digital services easily and conveniently. We also provide a real-time communications relay service that enables people with hearing impairment or language disorders who have difficulties using the telephone to communicate with others freely.
We established a digital social innovation support center in order to create an ecosystem for digital social innovation for the dissemination of a sound intelligent information culture and provide digital and SW education to people from all walks of life including youth, university students, and women.
We also support the prevention and resolution of the dysfunction of intelligent information society by providing education on the prevention of smartphone overdependence, professional counseling, intelligent information ethics capacity-building education, cyberviolence prevention training, and operate an internet ethics experience zone based on people’s life cycles.
