Wi-Fi Wednesdays comes to Houghton-le-Spring!

At popular drop-in centre, Space4 in Houghton-le-Spring, Jorgie, a volunteer trainer says: “We are excited to be launching Wi-Fi Wednesdays at Space4. Every Wednesday we will be open between 12noon and 1pm to help you with any query about using the internet and technology. We know how frustrating it is to not have someone to just show you how to use technology, be it a laptop, smartphone or tablet like an iPad – we’re here to help. We can help you get an email address, help you if you’ve lost a password, show you how to use Facebook or to download an app. Someone we helped said that she felt like she ‘had wings’ after been shown how to skype and email her family abroad. Learning how to use technology can really give you a new lease of life and connect you with people all around the world.”

As part of Wi-Fi Wednesdays Space4 will be running a series of free courses through the year including: Internet Safety, A Guide to Facebook, Fun with Photos, Family History and more.

You don’t need to have a computer or have any prior knowledge to attend (you can use one of ours) but feel free to bring your own laptop, smartphone or tablet with you.

The first course will be Internet Safety and will start on Wednesday 28th February at 10.00am-12noon at Space4 (under Houghton Library on Newbottle Street).

The course will be a free, fun and friendly guide to staying safe online:

28th February Week 1: Basic introduction to Internet Safety

7th March Week 2: Email and Passwords

14th March Week 3: Social Media safety

21st March Week 4: Online shopping and banking
