The  practice  of digital  inclusion has  to combine both technical and cognitive approaches. EL4EI  demonstrates that teaching technical skills involving the  use of a computer or Internet turn out to be useless if unaccompanied by motivation and contextualisation. Of course it goes without   saying that these practices are all unviable without a necessary minimum of infrastructure, i.e. access to a computer  and the internet. The battle against the digital divide must be waged on both fronts. According to the current research the five most  promising strategies in terms of establishing best practice in the use of e-learning for social and digital inclusion are: – combining teaching ICT with other non-digital knowledge equally important to social inclusion – communication to the target groups – establishing peer to peer teaching systems – creating informal environments –  using teachers similar to the students themselves, especially in cases of e-learning focused towards women
