Inclusee are proud to partner with The Good Things Foundation for Get Online Week 2022 from 17 – 23 October!
Get Online Week is an Australia-wide digital inclusion campaign supporting thousands of people to get online safely and confidently through hundreds of fun, local, digital skills events. This week-long, annual campaign supports people to improve their digital skills and close the digital divide.
As leaders in digital connection, Inclusee understands that older people, people with disability, low income families and First Nations people more at risk of digital exclusion. We strive to design and deliver easy-to-use digital programs to narrow this gap and provide a safe and supportive environment for our participants to not only connect with their community but also learn the necessary skills to build knowledge and confidence. Being digitally included means having affordable access to the internet and the skills and confidence to use it safely. We offer digital devices on loan, including sim cards, to empower our community with the tools they need to become connected and stay connected.
This year’s Get Online Week theme, Try one thing, encourages people to explore the possibilities of getting online. Sometimes all it takes to get online is to ‘Try one thing’ and this is the perfect time to start learning! Whether it’s a smartphone, tablet or laptop, there are many benefits to learning how to use it, to access the internet, connect with family, friends, peers, as well as health and wellbeing programs and services.
We have a jam packed schedule of amazing events for you to join in. Whether it’s Cooking with Kat, watercolour painting with Tatia, or testing your knowledge with In2Trivia, we have something for everyone, all you need to do is join in. You can download the timetable here.
Have you always wanted to try watercolour painting but not sure how? Join our Learn2Paint class to learn how to create a beautiful, watercolour painting. Some benefits to watercolour include its translucent nature, the vibrant colours, it’s quick and easy to set up, use and clean and some may say has therapeutic benefits. Inclusee will provide the materials for this event, which include:
Please note, you must register by Thursday, October 6th to guarantee receiving the painting pack in time for this session. For registrations after this time, you will still receive a painting pack, subject to availability. However, we cannot guarantee it will arrive in time for this session. Therefore, please ensure you are prepared with your own watercolour painting materials if you want to join in but register after October 6th.
Learn how to create a legacy for your loved ones. Jacinta will show you how easy it is to start an audio or video legacy recording as well as some great questions to get you started with your storytelling. Minimal digital skills are needed to set this up and you can continue to add to your story in your own time. We will also show you how to share it with your family and friends.
Come and join our virtual mens shed. This is a safe and fun place where men can share interests, connect with friends, contribute to their community and join in an atmosphere of old-fashioned mateship. And, importantly, there is no pressure. Men can just come and have a yarn and a cuppa if that is all they’re looking for.
In2Craft is all about celebrating your favourite crafts and your current projects. From scrapbooking, quilting, crocheting and knitting, you can share with our crafting community your projects and interests around your craft of choice. Bring out the sewing machines, knitting needles and tools of your trade and get crafting in this virtual space. This is an interactive, social group to empower and encourage people who love crafts, who can swap tricks and tips and help their fellow crafter with anything they may be stuck with.
It’s easy! Simply complete the registration form.
You can join in on as many events as you like, so don’t be shy, get registering and get online today!
