UNLEY LIBRARIES’ NEW PROGRAM
TO SUPPORT RESIDENTS IN THE DIGITAL AGE
A new digital literacy program will be launched across the City of Unley’s libraries this month.
The Reboot program has been created in response to an increasing demand from the community for support and training with new technology, in particular mobile devices.
Unley Libraries are actively offering an opportunity for residents to develop capabilities and competencies in digital literacy and help them to appreciate the benefits of new technology.
The program will provide a flexible learning environment for residents of all ages to increase their online engagement and better understand the opportunities created by new and emerging technologies.
The program is designed to be interactive, collaborative and confidence building. Topics covered include how to use an iPad or tablet, participating in social networking, creating new content, and the importance of online security.
Reboot will be officially launched at Unley Town Hall on Thursday, September 24, at 6pm. The event will be opened by guest speaker Associate Professor Katrina Falkner, who is the University of Adelaide’s Head of School of Computer Science, followed by demonstrations of creative and innovative technologies.
