I’ve been continuing to deliver free digital skills workshops to older Bournville Village Trust residents at Shenley Court Hall. This month’s workshops have focused on staying safe online. Here are some straightforward tips for improving your online security today.
OpenUp Digital is currently working with Bournville Village Trust (BVT) to deliver a series of free digital skills and confidence workshops for local, mainly retired residents. The sessions are scheduled to run from February through to June, with participants learning a new topic every month. This month, I’ve delivered three beginners’ workshops at Shenley Court Hall. Here’s what I’ve learned so far.
Last Thursday OpenUp Digital partnered with Bournville Village Trust (BVT) to successfully deliver their first ever Digi-Fayre event. The free digital inclusion event was one of many events taking place up and down the country as part of Get Online Week 2016. I’d like to share with you what I think made the Digi-Fayre a success so that people thinking of putting on their own digital inclusion event can benefit from what we learned.
Earlier this month I blogged about next month’s Get Online Week digital inclusion campaign and said that I was hoping to be supporting the week in my home city of Birmingham. Today, I’m pleased to be able to confirm that I will be supporting Bournville Village Trust’s (BVT) ‘Digi-Fayre’ at Bournville Gardens on Thursday 20 October.
Did you know that next month is Get Online Week? Started in 2007, it’s the UK’s biggest digital inclusion campaign and this year the week will take place between 17 and 23 October. OpenUp Digital will be supporting Get Online Week in Birmingham (more details coming soon). If you’d like to help more people benefit from the internet, there’s still time to get involved.
