Free events across Wales on Digital Day, Friday 20th May

leave a comment »

Friday 20th May is when we will be helping hundreds of people to get online for the first time and others to brush up on their computer skills.

Many events are being held across Wales to reach thousands of people – and they’re all free!

Digital Day is part of Adult Learners’ Week. Staff from Communities 2.0, the Welsh Assembly Government’s digital inclusion programme, will be among those, providing fun learning opportunities through Information Technology (IT).

Visit Click. Connect. Discover to find out where our Communities 2.0 staff will be on the day, and come along to meet them.

Find out about other events being held by local organisations across Wales springonline website (external website).

To help you help someone else get started with the web, we have a selection of ‘how to’ videos on our website. You could also show them Albert’s video where the 73-year-old ex-miner explains why getting online has been so important to him.

There will also be resources to print off and follow for people getting to grips with useful websites for the first time.

Digital Day has also been called ‘Silver Surfer’s Day’ in the past but this year events in Wales are open to everyone over the age of 16 as part of Adult Learners Week.

Previous blog post: Silver Surfers’ Day 2010 – but why should older people bother with the internet?
