Project Summary:

Supported by eCampusOntario RFP Digital Inclusion Research funding, SMARTT aims to develop digital/online interventions that combat the marginalization of persons fleeing conflict and persecution: Syrian refugees newly settled in Canada through the federal government’s PSR Program. SMARTT builds on cutting-edge empirical findings so as to address two of the Digital Inclusion target areas: Access – empowering marginalized groups and communities in the design and use of digital technologies; and Application – the development of an innovative social intervention which utilizes digital technologies to facilitate the enhancement of strong and meaningful social networks for socially marginalized and isolated individuals and groups.
