Computer Technology

To remain current, it is important that our adults are as literate with using today’s technology as our children are. This ensures that they can keep up with the rapidly changing digital landscape and support their children’s technological education. 

Introduction to Computers
Adults are taught the fundamentals of using a computer, including how to turn it on and off, navigate the operating system, and use a mouse and keyboard.

Understanding Hardware and Software
Participants learn about the different components of a computer (such as the monitor, CPU, and peripherals) and the basics of software applications.

Basic Navigation Skills
Training includes how to open and close programs, manage files and folders, and use basic word processing software.

Internet and Email
Adults are introduced to using the internet for research, accessing information, and communicating via email. This includes setting up email accounts, sending and receiving emails, and understanding online safety and privacy.

Office Software Proficiency
The program progresses to teaching the use of essential office software, such as word processors, spreadsheets, and presentation tools. Skills include creating documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, as well as editing and formatting them.

Social Media and Communication Tools
Participants learn how to use social media platforms (such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) to stay connected with family and friends. They also explore communication tools like video conferencing (Zoom, Skype) to enhance their ability to communicate in a modern, digital world.

Online Services and E-commerce
Training covers how to use online services for banking, shopping, and managing utilities. This includes understanding secure transactions, online banking safety, and how to navigate e-commerce sites.

Digital Literacy and Critical Thinking
Adults are taught how to evaluate the credibility of online information, recognize fake news, and protect themselves from online scams and phishing attempts.

By following this structured progression, adults can gradually build their technological skills and confidence. This not only helps them keep up with their children’s tech-savviness but also enhances their own personal and professional lives by making them more proficient and comfortable with modern technology.
