Lead Digital Mentors, Mark Young and Jean Martin have well and truly filled their tutoring appointments, even in the uncertain COVID-19 times of delivery in a manner that this time last year was virtually untried, especially out of ASCCA in Sydney. Both are to be commended for their innovative initiatives, and commitment to ensure Seniors wishing to learn technology were catered for as best we could.
Jennifer and Natika, trained Lead Digital Mentors in the Be Connected and co-program, Health My Way, have now completed delivery of the program in their designated areas and all required outcomes have been met. Feedback from participants confirmed this topic and its contents were of great interest to all age groups from 18+, with the myGov and My Health Record sectors receiving greatest interest and requirement for tutorial assistance.
Jennifer also participated in the Co-Design webinars by Good Things in the development of three digital health resources--linked here.
Newly appointed Lead Digital Mentor, Linda Beard, recently successfully delivered her first scheduled face to face training session in the WA regional town of Busselton. The sessions form part of the 4 Peak Body Partnership Project formed several months ago between Linkwest, ASCCA, CWA of WA and Men’s Sheds of WA. Further sessions, delivered both face to face and remotely are scheduled for December and into the New Year. Expressions of interest to participate are still being accepted from folk interested in being trained as a Be Connected Mentor to provide support and tutorials to members of the project groups.
