Digital literacy isn’t just about computers.  It can involve mobile phones, tablets and iPads; GPS systems; stock control, point of sale or measuring devices; calculators….  Any type of equipment.  Some people need to set things up from scratch.  Everyone has specific objectives.  We explore this to ensure that you learn what, how and when you need to.

 

Computer/Digital literacy sessions require learners to bring their device and activate their hotspot.  Fran has a tablet to show you how to do things.  Access to a library or workplace computer may be required.
