Digital Literacy Classes for Seniors

Digital technology, including smart phones and iPads, have become important tools to keep us socially connected. Kingston Council is offering face to face workshops for older people to develop their digital literacy, in small groups.

Training will be provided on Apple iPads and these can be borrowed from Kingston Libraries for the duration of the program.

The program is aimed at seniors (aged 55+) who are not confident in the digital world but who are enthusiastic to learn. Beginners and seniors with little or no digital skills are encouraged to register.

There will be 4 sessions at specified Library Branches. Workshops will involve some reading, some exercises, some discussion, and hands-on learning. We hope you will learn and have some fun at the same time. Just contact Kingston Libraries to register a place or go onto the waiting list.

Content covered will be in part driven by participants' interests but will include:

  • Differences between devices
  • Finding your way around an ipad, using apps, etc.
  • Using the internet, search engines
  • Safety online
  • Email accounts
  • Keeping in touch with others - zoom, facetime, skype, sending photos
  • Important websites to be aware of

For more information or to register your interest about participating, please contact Kingston Libraries ☎ 1300 135 668 or ✉ library@kingston.vic.gov.au.

One-off one on one sessions with a skilled Librarian to learn a specific skill are also possible. Please contact Kingston Libraries for more information.
