This week, digital literacy classes have begun at Haeata Community Campus. This is a collaboration between Haeata, 20/20 Trust and GCSN (Greater Christchurch Schools Network.) A group of 8 parents are gathering in the library twice a week to learn more about the the world of the Internet, create CVs, email, etc. The content of the classes will be created around the needs of the participants. Their trainer is Mikaere Flavell, who is currently completing YR13 at Haeata. Mikaere is a technical whizz who loves to spend time building building computers.

Now it’s time to step up and ensure all citizens have the skills, motivation, confidence and trust to live and work in a digital world.” Catherine Soper - author of the study - Digital Inclusion in New Zealand: Assessing Government policy approaches and initiatives.

At Bamford School this term, we experimented with a combined Computers in Homes, Stepping Up and KiwiSkills ICDL class. Three students were new, and 6 had already graduated from a CiH class. It worked fabulously and tutor Ria took it all in her stride :)
