world today, people are ‘connected’ in more ways than was ever thought
possible. For those who have grown up in this world of technology, it can be
easier to understand and connect socially with others. For the more
senior members of the community, connection with family and friends in this new
realm can prove more challenging.
of EncounterMC, Marcellin’s junior youth and social justice group, we are keen
to help. So on Wednesday, November 22 from 4:30 to 6:00pm we will be holding an
information and training workshop for those in our extended community who
are interested in making the most of the technology we encounter daily to
connect with family and friends. Whilst focus will primarily be on email and
social media, we can offer assistance in a range of issues relating to the use
of personal devices (eg. Smartphones and laptop).
limited and bookings are required via College Main Reception on (03) 9815 1589
by no later than 4:00pm Monday, November 20. We encourage you to invite the
more senior members of your family (eg. grandparents) to participate, however
anyone is welcome. Whilst computers are available at the College, we ask that
if possible participants bring their own device (eg. smartphone, tablet or
laptop) as this will prove of greater benefit when taking the new found skills home.
