Dropping It Down & Low Into The Internet | Post Office Digital Drop In

Hey everyone!

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that today, I would talk to you all about being digitially confident, as we are living in a world that is becoming more and more dependent on being digital.

As with all blog posts, if you're not interested on reading this post as it doesn't appeal to you from the title/intro above, then please do not read on, but instead read something on the blog that appeals to you, as, this blog contains content from food, to, beauty, to, lifestyle, and everything in between.

Post Office Broadband conducted a survey amongst 4,000 UK citizens, and found out that, 20% of the UK don't feel digitally confident whether this is people of an older age who don't know how to tackle technology, parents of those who have children who are surrounded by technology even in the school, or, those of us who just feel like we're lacking when it comes to being tech savvy. In Leeds, more than half struggle to use newer devices including smart music devices

73% of people who took part in the survey, said that, they would like digital support to boost their confidence to ensure that they're on top form when it comes to anything digital.

After hearing the results of the survey, Post Office Broadband have teamed up with Google Digital Garage to help out the public/any of you reading that sometimes has trouble with being digital confidence, via, having digital drop in sessions to ensure that you learn everything that you need. The drop in sessions will cover help with thins such as emails and the internet, all the way, to protecting yourself online. They'll even help you with problems concerning your devices if you bring them in with you.

Digital drop in sessions will be in locations including, Leeds, Southamption, Plymouth, Cardiff, Norwich and Belfast. If the listed locations are nowhere near you then you can still suggest a location for the digital drop in sessions to visit.

The first session will be at Leeds Central Library on the 22nd July between 10am and 1pm. I'd definitely go if you have any queries that are digitally based, as, the best of the best will be able to help you. I'd also go in case you need to top up on anything such as how to keep up with your children when it comes to being online, or, bring any of your older members of family so they can get to grips with things that they feel insecure about when it comes to the digital world.
