Get connected with a free course at Eden Access Centre

Eden Community Access Centre will be at the Eden Community Markets on Saturday, June 15 to introduce the 'Be Connected Explore the World Program'.

You may already know about Google Earth - but come and have some fun with Google Voyager and Google Arts and Culture - explore famous landmarks, take a walk through the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, admire famous art works, and much more.

Be Connected is a free Australian government initiative aimed at increasing the skills, confidence and online safety of older Australians when they use the internet and everyday technology.

Older Australians can access interactive learning activities, training courses, web apps and how to videos.

There are training courses covering the basics of using computers and digital devices, online shopping, social media and more - all designed to appeal and be of interest to older Australians

Volunteers from the Access Centre will be on hand at the markets to demonstrate and explain the features of the Be Connected Program. For more information, or to sign up (for free) to the Be Connected Program contact the Eden Community Access Centre on 6496 3970
