Being Kind in Digital Literacy

It’s hard to believe it’s February already! This month we celebrate love – not just romantic love, but also love of friends, family, and our furry companions. And love for ourselves. Plus, it’s Kindness Month! Being kind is amazing, but people often forget the most important person to be kind to is yourself.

What does it look like to be kind to yourself? In digital literacy, it looks like learning to use your devices, forgiving yourself when you make mistakes, and trying new things.

Computer Basics is the perfect class for someone with little or no computer experience. In Internet Basics, we dive in a little more and learn how to use the Internet, send emails, recognize frauds and scams, and be safe online. If you’re hoping to learn about word processing or spreadsheets and presentations, then Skills for Work is the class for you! And we can’t forget the tiny computers in our pockets or purses; we learn about smartphones and tablets in Smart for All.

So, if you or someone you know is interested in any of these classes, let me know! Learning to use the computer can help you connect with friends and family online, is needed for many jobs, to stay up to date with your children’s school, and is just fun.

Something Fun

You can use LinkedIn Learning for free with your Edmonton Public Library account. These classes cover topics like how to use your computer and commonly used programs.

Finally, I want to say a huge thank you to the tutors! I cannot fully express how much of an impact you have on the lives of our learners, but you do. Your hard work is appreciated and seen. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
