Week 4 of participant's progress;
Another busy and successful day. Most participants were so involved they didn't even stop to have morning tea!

Last week they created an email address. This week it was time to use it.
All participants sent and received an email. They even learnt that they could send an email to their own address. Very useful if you're sending an important email and want to check exactly what the receiver will see.

Emails were further demystified when numerous terms were explained eg
Compose, Sent, To, Cc, Bcc, Address, Internet Browsers etc.

Participants may not have stopped for morning tea, but no one could resist having a chat over another delicious light lunch.

What mysteries of the digital world will be revealed next week?

Happy International Women's Day!

Special mention goes to our participants in our Step Stone Program;
'Another day of achievements!
You can feel the confidence of the participants growing each week as they interact with each other and with their computers.

Last week they learnt how to create and save a Word document. This week it was learning to write on that document using capital and bold letters, creating paragraphs and learning how to remove those inevitable mistakes.

The highlight of the day, besides chatting over a delicious light lunch, was creating a brand new email address. '
