Introducing Digital Learning Resources
With the Passport to the Digital World, seniors and people with disabilities can learn at their own pace and in a location that feels best for them – in their own home, in the CLC Office or another SF Connected computer lab, at their SF Library branch, with a friend. Small group classes and online opportunities will be available, beginning in March.
The Passport includes 14 “places” to visit in the online world: Getting Online (device and web browser basics), Navigating the Web Safely, Writing and Sending Email, Listening to Music, Watching Old Movies, Video Chatting, Playing Games Online, Shopping Online, Finding Healthy Recipes, Finding Transportation, Reading or Watching the News, Translation Tools, Scanning Pictures and Documents, Fun (Cheap) Things to Do in SF. There are also 2 bonus “places” to encourage learners to learn find other topics. Each topic includes two or three tasks for learners to master for a “stamp” on their passport.
For more on the topics, see the Online Learning Resources webpage. The resources page is currently available in English, and will soon be available in Spanish and Chinese.
As participants complete tasks, passport guides will “stamp” their passports for them. We will celebrate progress with parties in the coming months. We will invite participants to join their Digital World neighbors to celebrate progress and learn from each other. The parties will include recognition and certificates for those who complete their passports, as well as raffle prizes for passport holders at all stages of learning.
San Francisco Reaching Out to Partners Increase Digital Literacy
The Passport was developed by the Community Living Campaign and was designed to:
- Increase beginning computer users’ interest in all of the exciting things available online
- Share and publicize the many learning and technology access resources available to San Francisco seniors and people with disabilities
- Help participants find the resources and classes they need to get connected and safely navigate the internet
- Help organizations and tutors to find and share teaching resources
- Provide a set of specific skills for each learning module
The Community Living Campaign, if additional funding becomes available, would love to offer this program again to SF Connected Partners, the San Francisco Public Library, and others. If interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
