We recently connected 2 more sheltered schemes with broadband and equipped them with a laptop and PC.
To launch the service we organised an event at each as part of Silver Surfers Day / Spring Online working with the 'Get IT Together Barnsley' project; first of all we run a 1.5 hour taster session for tenants before linking the 2 sites via Skype for a game of BIG BERNESLAI BINGO.
All tenants had a great time, we searched local library photo archives, used YouTube, looked at online shopping, created a Skype ac for a tenant who had family in Australia as well as looking at online shopping and games.
All tenants had a great time and were really motivated to learn more about the internet.
Now we have connected both sites with broadband and as a result of the events today, we have now organised 2 courses - one at each site - for tenants to carry on learning and support them to get more out of life online!
