Introduction to Tablets (BBO/WiLL project participants only)

Ref: C2342064

The sessions will help demystify computers and devices by looking at some of the jargon that is in use every day, what people should look for when buying a digital devise or signing a monthly contract and what "scares" people about shopping online etc. We will surf the web, use emails and discuss staying safe online. The course will help people decide what is right for them, what they want to progress with and learn more about. At the end of the sessions students will have an email account and be able to send and receive emails.
