The EPALE Ireland team attended Dr Ibrar Bhatt's recent seminar, Researching Digital Literacies From The Ground Up. The seminar was hosted by the National Institute for Digital Learning (NIDL) at Dublin City University.

Dr Bhatt shared his view of digital literacies as social practice. He reminded us that 'equal access to technology does not result in equal experience' for learners.

We exhibit the activities in our establishment done by our trainees throughout the year. We make our adults to join these social activities via exhibiting those in different areas and different places. Our trainees feel better psychologically and socially during those exhibitions. They are also be able to find chance to sell things they created with handicraft. This helps to raise their socialization and our being known better.
