Evaluation of the computer and internet skills of the carers in the country

ICT skills are not part of the trainings for (home) care workers in Hungary actually. Care workers (home carers) are not in an environment that constraints them to the use of ICT tools. Their private life situations do not really require the use of these tools. Concerning the usage of ICT tools in their professional life, they work in some kind of ’shadowing’, not only in the use of ICT tools but in the whole performance of tasks. Hence, digital literacy and the expectation to use ICT tools stops at the level of the leadership.
