There are a large number of people in our local community, who would benefit from being able to use a tablet device (e.g. an iPad), and knowing how to use the Internet.
Our project would like to purchase 3 tablets for use in community training sessions.
Many people have tried learning how to use a computer in the past, and felt that it was overly complex and offputting. Tablet computers on the other hand are intuitive and easy to use.
By delivering training we hope to give people the opportunity to learn a new skill, and the ability to access information, knowledge, and services through the Internet.
Connecting them to the information they need, connecting them to family and friends, connecting them to online communities, and bringing our community closer together through technology.
