Become a Digital Literacy Volunteer Info Session (Online)

Free

with Ann Sargent, Ellsworth Adult Education

Calendar Feb 2, 2022 at 4 pm, runs for 1 week

Become a Digital Literacy Volunteer! Make a difference in this digital age.  The pandemic has increased dependence on technology and Ellsworth Adult Education has many people seeking individual support with digital devices (computers, smart phones, and tablets.)  Almost all of these learners are functioning at a basic level.    Our experience shows that computer classes are challenging as everyone has a different device, software, learning style and goal.  Over the past year we have started a Computer Cafe--designed as a computer lab of sorts--where people can come to meet individually or in small groups to learn from one another and an experienced teacher.  We have found this approach to be very effective.  In order to grow this program we need volunteers to assist the instructor to provide the individualized instruction.    Our current hours are Mondays 11am-1pm and Thursdays, 4pm-6pm.  We are hoping to expand if we get enough volunteers!  We will provide you with some training, support and resources.  If you’re interested in learning more, register for this information session or reach out to us at adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org or 207.664.7110.
