Free I.T. (Intergenerational Training) Clinic

Active-Healthy-Ageing-IT.jpg

The Active & Healthy Ageing Initiative in conjunction with Maroondah secondary colleges offers a free training opportunity for Maroondah’s ageing community to receive free I.T. assistance from year 9 students within an intergenerational setting.

The I.T. Clinic is not a training course but is driven by the specific needs and requirements of participants. The participant will direct their own learning and address items that are of interest to them in their day-to-day lives.

In 2016, Ringwood Secondary College was the first pilot school to trial this successful program. This program was in response to their Year 9 InterGreat Program with their motto ‘making a difference to the community’. As the pilot phase was so successful, the school decided to offer the program as a monthly free community event in 2016.

In 2017, the program was continued at Heathmont College as part of their Year 9 Life Program and returned to Ringwood Secondary College in 2018. The program will continue in 2019 and will take place on Tuesday 11 June and Tuesday 18 June 2019 from 9.30am to 11am.

Upcoming topics will include:

  • privacy on Facebook
  • how to find and download podcasts
  • using maps
  • backing up phone/ipad
  • using Google Alexa and Apple Siri.
