The project is helping museums of any size better define, improve, measure and embed the digital literacy of their staff and volunteers in all roles and at all levels. By introducing a new approach to digital literacy, understanding and development, the project is shifting mindsets across the museum sector from just thinking about the technology and how to use it, to thinking instead about how we use, manage, create and understand it.  It is helping people in museums to be more informed, reflective, responsive and active around digital.

One by One is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), is led by The University of Leicester  and is being delivered together with Culture24 and a range of museums, strategic sector agencies and academic partners.
