There was a time when a person could acquire all necessary life skills with or without a computer. But alas, that time has come and gone, and today those without access to the internet are no longer well placed to gain the qualifications required to get ahead in life.
Now many employers won’t even consider someone without a useful online identity, let alone read a hand-written resume, portfolio or job application. Those that don’t have internet access and computer skills have been abandoned on the wrong side of the digital divide, with ever-diminishing prospects.
It’s true that everyone doesn’t require the internet, and in some ways such people can be considered fortunate. But for most of us, our very existence and wellbeing relies on computers and smart devices. Technology is required even to find a job vacancy, not to mention holding onto steady employment. The digital divide has spread to the point that even elderly must upgrade their skill-set just to maintain adequate communications with family and pay bills. The gap of the digital divide has grown into a canyon.
Back in the day, there weren’t any smartphones and now we can’t even remember the last time we actually didn’t use our smartphone for a whole day. Mobile smart devices and mobile Internet are changing the way we do things and how we connect with other people.
Now, 3.2 billion people are now using the internet, 2 billion of which are in developing countries. The global mobile broadband market is highly dynamic: market penetration increased 12 times since 2007.
However, 38% of smartphone users are not proficient in the use of their device according to Pew Research. That’s over 100 million individuals!
Our instructional webinars are the long-term solution for addressing how to use products of technology such as computers, mobile devices and gaming consoles. Each webinar is specific to a particular device and the schedule provides a date & time for each webinar with options that include: beginner, intermediate or advanced and also age grouping (18-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65+).
Internet availability and access is important without a doubt, but knowing how to fully utilize the constantly evolving devices that connect to it, are just as important if not more.
