EuroSCUG (Eurobodalla Seniors Computer Users Group) has partnered with Tec Exec to help community members learn more about using tablets and smart phones safely.
The Tec Exec company is locally owned and operated by Trish Pye, who has been teaching/training people to use electronic devices for a long time.
Tec Exec is a Be Connected Network Partner. They are part of a network of over 3,500 community organisations across the country who are supporting their communities to learn digital skills.
The Be Connected programs are funded by the Federal Government and delivered locally by community specialists, and is aimed at increasing the confidence, skills and online safety of older Australians when they use the internet.
Tec Exec are delivering these programs across the Eurobodalla Shire. Currently, Moruya Golf Club is hosting a weekly session on Friday mornings from 9.30 to 11.30am. It is planned that these sessions will run every Friday until the end of July. They may also continue past that time. The aim of the program is to support older members of our community to learn about these electronic devices and how to use them safely. Also to understand how the systems work and to understand a bit more of questions to ask when purchasing a new device and the plans that support them.
There is also a program running in Tuross as part of the EuroSCUG Local Area Group.
Last year they worked very successfully with the NBN Hub in Batemans Bay.
They are planning other sessions in Narooma following a very success session there recently.
