Auburn Digital Pods is a training program delivered by the Family Creative Hub for women from families accessing support groups at Auburn Diversity Services Inc. (ADSi).
Women learn the skills to engage with digital creativity, literacy and communication over 9 weekly 2-hour sessions. Workshops focus on computer skills, digital English literacy, web navigation, social media, as well as more advanced software like Photoshop.
The focus for Term 1 is on delivering digital and English literacy workshops to the Tamil Women’s Support group. Workshops include essential training around online safety and accessing online services in a friendly, relaxed space with experienced facilitators and childminders.
The intent is for the women to feel more confident using computers and navigating the internet.
Facilitators: Liza Moscatelli and Priti Lata Mazumder
Term 2 is all about using digital tools for business development. The women from the Tamil Women’s Support group will be learning to make business cards and flyers, as well as how smart phones, tablets and social media can be used for marketing and promotion.
