Love them or hate them, computers are an important part of life. They help us to stay connected with friends and family, meet new people, join groups or societies, buy things or holidays cheaper, learn new skills or take up new hobbies, and importantly apply for jobs or benefits.
So we thought it would be a good idea to organise a digital skills workshop to cover all the fundamental skills needed to get started using computer and get online. The workshop is aimed at newbies or folk who maybe want a refresher on using computers and surfing the net, and is primarily aimed at people with lived experience of mental health problems.
The course will cover everything from the basics such as powering up a computer, saving and printing, and using Microsoft Windows to manage programs to more complex stuff like staying secure online, setting up personal email accounts, downloading software, online shopping, and social media.
The course runs for four weekly two-hour sessions, it’s completely free, and is designed to be as accessible as possible for those who might want to attend. Digital buddies will be on-hand to offer one-to-one support.
The classes will be held on at the Mitchell Library on the following dates:
- Tuesday 14 November, 10am – 12pm
- Tuesday 21 November, 10am – 12pm
- Tuesday 5 December, 10am – 12pm
- Tuesday 12 December, 10am – 12pm
Please meet at the information desk inside the Granville Street entrance of the library.
