The Introductory programmes consist of digital citizen and digital citizen plus programmes. Both programmes are delivered in a workshop format under the guidance of a qualified trainer.
DIGITAL CITIZEN AND DIGITAL CITIZEN PLUS
Digital Citizen and Digital Citizen Plus Programmes are specially developed to cater for those with little or no experience whatsoever of computers and the Internet. Digital Citizen helps to remove the fear of using a computer for complete novices by using a simple, non-threatening approach to educating individuals in the basic skills of using a computer, email and the Internet.
- It is a fun, informal and uncomplicated introduction to computers and the Internet for complete beginners.
- It is designed to give an appreciation and basic understanding of computers and the Internet.
- It is designed to build confidence and provide a basis to encourage further exploration and development of computer and Internet skills.
Digital Citizen is designed for complete beginners and is open to everyone regardless of status, education, age, ability or understanding. There are many people who have never switched on a computer and are only vaguely aware of the Internet and its uses. Many of these people would like to know more about computers and the Internet but may feel that it’s too complicated or that it’s too late for them to learn. If that sounds like someone you know, Digital Citizen is the programme for them to overcome their fears and get started with computers.
The syllabus sets out the specific knowledge and skills that make up this programme, as informed by input from subject matter experts from a wide range of computer societies and organisations.
