This event is all about trying one new thing online and seeing the fun and convenience the internet can bring.
While many of us know that the internet can make it easier to keep in touch with family and friends, source information and many other tasks, some are put off by security concerns and a lack of skills or confidence.
To help older Australians get online confidently and securely we are working with The Good Things Foundation – a strategic partner who specialises in digital connection and education. The Office of the eSafety Commissioner and Good Things Foundation have developed the online learning program, Be Connected, which is funded by the Australian Government.
This free learning program contains easy to follow modules on a range of topics aimed at getting older Australians connected digitally and enjoying all the benefits of that - like Skyping grandchildren, reading the news online, reaching out to old friends on Facebook, or writing their memoir. ICT professionals, Computer One, have kindly volunteered some staff to deliver this training.
Come along to our bring-your-own device event and we will give you information that you can take away to continue your online learning with this program.
This is a free event but space is limited so registration is essential.
