Coronavius help from Digital Communities Wales
Digital Communities Wales has developed several free online digital inclusion training courses, including webinars and digital surgeries in response to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
Digital technology has proved to be vital in helping people stay connected, socialise online, shop for groceries, find reliable health information and access resources and activities to keep occupied during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Digital Communities Wales is offering FREE remote webinars, surgeries and resources:
Digital Drop-in Sessions - Every Thursday Digital Communities Wales are running free drop-in workshops where we are available to give virtual one-to-one, or group lessons on using apps or devices.
Devices we cover include:
- Android tablets or phone
- Apple iPads and iPhones
- Smart Devices such as Alexa
- Requests for devices unique to personal situations.
Within these lessons we are able to discuss and problem solve user issues and offer advice on making the most of accessibility software on personal devices.
DCW Webinars - At Digital Communities Wales we've been working hard to develop online webinar programme on 'Keeping Occupied', 'Staying In Touch', 'Identifying Reliable Health Information Online', and 'Online Shopping'. All of the sessions will be delivered separately in English and in Welsh.
DCW Padlets - To help people stay connected, safe and well during this pandemic DCW has created online Padlets to use and share. The Padlet is simple to navigate and allows us to group information according to a topic. We update each Padlet page as soon as a new resource is discovered, so keep an eye out for daily updates.
