Learning Together with Digital Literacy

Happy August everyone! I don’t know about you, but it seems like summer just started and suddenly we’re halfway through August. How did that happen? They say time flies when you’re having fun, but I think it also flies when your brain is engaged and you’re learning new things.

As the Digital Literacy Program Coordinator at PALS, one thing I always tell new learners is that nobody starts as a digital expert—and that includes me!

To be honest, I’ve never used graphs in Microsoft Excel before. But here’s the cool part: some of the learners already know how to do it! They learned this skill in the Skills for Work class. I sat with one of the learners as she worked on her Excel project, and she showed me how to put in a graph. It was fantastic, and I was thrilled to learn something new from her.

Our Digital Literacy Program is a place where you can learn at your own pace and get help from others. We’re on this journey together, figuring out the digital world step by step.

Let’s remember that none of us are experts right away. We grow and learn together, and that’s what makes our program special. The digital world might seem big and overwhelming, but we’ve got each other’s back. With a positive attitude, we’ll create better opportunities for ourselves and our communities. Let’s keep going and exploring together!

Welcome New Tutors

Fun Fact: Did you know?

The word “spam” used for unwanted emails and messages comes from a classic Monty Python sketch in which a group of Vikings repeatedly sings “spam, spam, spam” to drown out other conversations.
