Be Connected – FREE Technology Sessions

March 7 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 1:00pm on Thursday, repeating until April 11, 2019

Be Connected is an Australia wide initiative empowering all Australians to thrive in a digital world, offering online learning resources as well as a Network of community partners like Pollinators. The FREE sessions offer in-person support so you can develop your digital skills and confidence. 

Older Australians with low internet skills can often feel isolated from their community and family at a time in their lives when feeling connected is increasingly important.

Be Connected aims to change that through a family and community centred approach; it will help older Australians to realise the value of being connected online and provide access to appropriate training and support in a safe and familiar environment.

Launched in early October 2017, the Be Connected initiative delivers a range of resources specifically designed to support these Australians via:

  • A dedicated website with information and interactive training tools and resources for older Australians, their families and peers, and local community organisations.
  • Free access to personalised face to face help and support through the Be Connected Partner Network.

 

Sessions are driven by participant needs but can include how to:

  • use a digital device
  • access the internet
  • be safe online
  • send emails
  • get started on Facebook and other social media
  • shop online
  • share holiday photos with family,
  • make a video phone call to anyone for free
  • and much more.

Be Connected Session Dates:  March 7 & 21, April 4 & 11 from 1-3 pm.

Afternoon tea provided.

Please call Pollinators on 9965 5371 to RSVP!
