The presentation this month was a report back from Bev on the ‘digital literacy and inclusion’ themes at the recent U3A Network Victoria conference. There is a blog entry on 26 August containing Bev’s summary notes with links to videos and documents.
Our extended coffee break again provided time for useful sharing between members!
Tech Savvy Seniors Margaret Walshe and Judy Stewart
Our working groups then met to discuss their areas of interest. It’s a new experience for us all to working in a class structured to allow for three ‘mini groups’ – ‘bloggers’, ‘mentors’ and ‘tech heads’ - linked by an overall interest in remaining ‘tech savvy’. Time seems to fly and it’s soon time for each group to briefly report back to the group as a whole. The ‘bloggers’ are continuing to develop their ideas about ‘blogging’; the ‘mentors’ clarifying possible ways of offering support to increase ‘digital inclusion’, and the ‘tech heads’ following up procurement of I-Pads; discussing Wi-Fi options for W4 and preparing for Terry’s presentation on ‘Smart TV’s’.
