I heard my friend speak something that I almost thought was jibberish the other day. She said ‘I don’t know how to use a computer’. I almost fell over.
This all came about because I am attempting to get her out of a rutt with her employment. Yet there seems to be a fairly large catch 22 with this:
Can’t use a computer –> misses out on good job opportunities –> can’t get a job with a decent salary –> doesn’t have the salary to be able to afford a computer course = can’t use a computer.
I know for a while that there was a free seniors computing course being held in Belconnen. Does anyone know of any free or cheap basic computer courses provided around Canberra? I haven’t been able to find anything through the normal mediums.
