LIKTA (Latvia) has developed trainings on wearable technologies for e-health and on how to start a business on 3D
Digital Storytelling will be increasingly important in the future, and therefore storytelling skills, being able to report
on what you have done, could be an area for support by Telecentres.
Remote working and micro contracts require different skills from office-based working – self time management,
online collaboration. In this case you are the product and you have to have the skills to sell yourself.
New skills, such as remote working and collaborative work, are becoming increasingly important, and telecentres
could teach the tools and apps to support (remote) teamwork.
People lose confidence, if things change rapidly; telecentres could help people cope with those changes.

On the second day, there were three more interactive sessions. The first were seven parallel How To workshops where
leaders prepared practical tips for delegates on how to deliver specific activities, campaigns or services within
telecentres. The How To sessions were designed to give delegates a practical understanding of how to carry out a
particular activity. Speakers shared their own experience that could help delegates to understand the pitfalls,
practicalities and lessons learned.

After lunch we ran an Unconference where anybody could offer and run any type of session and consequently
everybody could join whatever interested them most. The sessions could explore looking for partners for a particular
project, a proposed project to apply for funding, or an urgent issue in telecentre development. Five main topics were set
in advance and two more were suggested on the day.
