During the evening we took the opportunity to tell our members about the Be Connected Drop In program which commenced in February 2020 with sessions on the first and third Monday mornings at 10am. The members who have attended these sessions are interested in expanding their computer skills to keep pace with the many communications that are available on the internet. People who have few computer skills are also encouraged to come along. U3A Benalla has a small number of mobile devices which are available to lend to members to get them started if they do not have a tablet or iPad of their own.
We are using the Be Connected modules as a guide to help our learners. Following the Pizza night we had a session on Safety first which included safe passwords and paying safely on line. Everyone seemed to appreciate the excellent words of advice that the module provided. The module is available under the Topic Library on www.beconnected.esafety.gov.au for those who would like to look it up.
The next session of Be Connected will be on Monday 16th March 2020 at 10am. All welcome.
