Seniors helping seniors use computers and the internet


The Internet Kiosk

SeniorNet have an Internet Kiosk in our office at the Humanities Building in South Street (corner Nicholas Street), Ipswich.  The kiosk features five computers with broadband access for use by older members of our local community and is staffed by our volunteer tutors.  The Kiosk was originally funded under the Australian Government ‘Broadband for Seniors’ initiative in 2008.  

The internet kiosk offers the opportunity for older people to discover how the web can play a great part in helping them to stay in touch with friends and family, along with offering access to the wealth of information available online.  This is their chance to find out what all the excitement is about.  Seniors can learn at their own pace with dedicated volunteers available to help them and provide training in basic computer use, word processing, email and using the internet.

Our normal course consists of four FREE lessons covering: Introduction to the Computer and Windows; The Internet and how to explore it.  Each session is of ninety minutes duration and is booked on application to John.  The sessions have up to two attendees, and a tutor to guide you. This course also serves as an Introductory Course for members of SeniorNet.

So if you, or someone you know, would be interested in learning more about computers and the internet for free, please contact John or Phil as detailed below.
