Can you Dig-IT?
Social Inclusion = Digital Participation
Today’s society is a digital society. Through technology and the internet, we connect with others, do our shopping, attend appointments, learn, work, and play. Some of us have grown up with technology, others have not. One thing is certain though – technology is here to stay – so let’s embrace it.
Ageing in a Digital World is Pretty Cool
What once was a luxury is now a necessity: there is a need to navigate the online world for day to day living. Once we get the hang of it though, it's really helpful. Natural changes come with aging and embracing technology can hugely impact quality of life and help overcome health and other related challenges that we face as we age.
Dig-IT is Your Passport to Digital Citizenship
Many barriers however prevent older people from adopting technology. Dig-IT is designed to empower seniors to overcome these barriers, access technology, build digital skills, stay safe and have fun online! No one should be left behind because of age or income.
