DIGITAL LITERACY

Technological skills are often taken for granted. Our Digital Literacy program aims to use youth-run, in-person workshops to teach these essential digital literacy skills to those who lack them, especially mature-aged groups.

We aim to:

  • Teach the fundamentals of technology;

  • Equip seniors with the technological skills

    and confidence to become self-sufficient and

    to teach others;

  • Build lasting relationships between the

    volunteer and the individual.

AUSTRALIAN SENIORS COMPUTER

CLUBS ASSOCIATION

We are very excited to be working with Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association (ASCCA) to provide additional youth volunteers to assist with your already comprehensive programs. We hope that the following proposal indicates the best way to do so, in a way that maximises the potential of both ASCCA and Square One volunteers to ensure that we are helping Seniors within our community in the best way possible.

COVID-19 UPDATE

As the wellbeing of our beneficiaries and members is our paramount concern, we unfortunately will not be running Digital Literacy workshops in aged-care facilities this Semester.


Instead we will focus on increasing our own digital skills with online training and lesson development. We are in discussions with our partners as to what this will look like and will be in touch soon with opportunities for your involvement. Watch this space if you have an interest in building up your own online skills, with the aim of using them to run technology workshops for Seniors in the future!

In the meantime, we are always looking for members to help grow our digital literacy programs and contribute new ideas. If you’re interested, email Isabella at digital.literacy@squareone.org.au.
