Encouraged by the idea of the need for the full integration and participation of older people in the community through lifelong education and to be active in older age, Computer Coach Australia designs and implements one-on-one computer training for seniors and people with disabilities.
The program does not require any prior knowledge and includes familiarity with the Mac/Apple and Windows operating systems, Microsoft Office, Social media, Websites as well as the basics of using the Internet, namely: internet search, sending and receiving e-mail.
More and more of us are on various services and social networks, so we can provide additional training specifically designed for the use of Viber, WhatsUp, Facebook, Skype, FaceTime, and YouTube as a part of our computer training for seniors and people with disabilities. We work with NDIS clients and travel to the home or office.
The motives for computer training are different. Some do it out of curiosity, but there are also those who learn from necessity. When our closest ones are abroad, phone bills are big. So the best option is to learn how to stay in touch online, but you will need your computer or smartphone to do so.
Through our computer training for seniors and people with disabilities, Computer Coach, Australia wants to enable senior citizens to keep up with the times and teach them a new form of communication, so they can get better informed and feel empowered. You can meet Computer Coach Australia at the upcoming Seniors expo in North Sydney as part of Seniors week.
Computer literacy often opens up new opportunities for learning and gaining new knowledge, especially for people with disabilities. In this way, they are enabled to communicate more easily with each other and with the rest of the world. Step-by-step methods in a one-on-one environment will make it easier for them to master computer programs as quickly and easily as possible. Together we write easy to follow operating system notes that you can go back to.
Fear of Technology
Many of our students who enroll in our computer training for seniors and people with disabilities may have an underlying fear technology. Just thinking about working on a computer gives them anxiety. If this is you, don’t worry. It’s perfectly natural and we will alleviate those fears through our sessions.
Our own Zoe Campbell has 30 years of experience working with technology and she is also a yoga therapist. She can utilise her empathic nature to read people and do calming things that they don’t even realise she is doing. No one can learn when they are stressed or if they have a background of learning disabilities. Computers are something we need to learn sequentially. Some people have learning gaps or they learn a specific way. Zoe is a trained teacher with a Bachelor of Education and Diploma of Education specialising in technology and special needs. She can really empower people!
A Computer Course for Seniors and People with Disabilities Can Really Help You
Have you had your children or grandchildren try to explain something to you? We bet afterward you were feeling even more confused and reluctant to try it on your own. That’s why working with a qualified teacher is so important.
Not only that but in a classroom environment, the teacher can spare only about 3-5 minutes of their time to each student one-on-one. Zoe knows this best because she was a TAFE teacher for 18 years. With computers, everyone is at a different level of understanding and that is why what you get in a one-on-one session is more than you will receive in a regular group environment.
Our sessions are organised one-on-one which is suitable no matter what level you are at. You will learn more, your confidence will increase and you will save so much time and frustration from trying to work it out. Technology is always changing and we need to keep our brains fresh and up-to-date with the changes. We need to learn how to learn so we can become empowered and independent.
Our computer training for seniors and people with disabilities is face-to-face, one-on-one. We also offer a remote service for those who are out of town, and we can work together online.
