Greta is 90 years old and has been going to IT training sessions as part of the Digital Heritage in the Community initiative in West Wales.
She believes that computers are a big part of daily life now and being online is very important. “You are connected with the whole world” she states. Her computer use before the course had been restricted to using a computer “as a typewriter”.
Greta says if you’re thinking of learning to use a computer then “…go for it. You can always go on a course”.

The BBC has announced the launch of BBC First Click campaign to help people get online.
BBC Connect is the website that will show you how to get involved, how to get other people involved and how to organise a ‘First Click’ session at your premises.
It provides information on the basics of using the internet and provides a phone number that you can call to discover where your nearest training session is being held.
The Communities 2.0 project run by the Wales Co-operative Centre in the guise of the Click.Connect.Discover campaign is a partner to BBC First Click in Wales.
