Jackie is a Digital Friend at Woodlands Community Library and Hub. Digital Friends provide you with one-to-one support and assistance getting online. She explains why she enjoys introducing people to the internet and the difference it makes to their lives.
From watching favourite singers on You Tube to using Google maps to locate a friend’s shop in America or sourcing the best software to organise your music collection, the members of the Doncaster iPad/tablet class are finding their new found technology skills can open up a whole new world of possibilities. The class takes place fortnightly at Central Library and are discovering how going online can benefit daily life as well as help them pursue their interests and hobbies.
Doncaster Council is supporting people to get online, use the internet and learn new skills.
Jane is a volunteer with the Pioneer Social Enterprise Ltd, a local Doncaster group that provides unemployed adults with learning difficulties or life debilitating illnesses the opportunity to gain voluntary work experience to help them find paid employment.
