Digital skills drop-in service and Embodied English classes.

“The teacher provided the space for creativity and it helped everyone to stay relaxed and learn more. As I am a creative person, I really loved this!” Quote from participant

This project gave senior citizens the opportunity to use a Digital Skills Café. This service created a relaxed environment that allowed participants to learn at their own pace with a mentor.

This free drop-in service ran from September 2023 to January 2024. Sessions took place in Trim library, the Trim Family Resource Centre, and Athboy library. 76 people used the Digital Café drop-in service overall.

Participants learnt how to send emails with attachments, fill out forms online, and transfer data from one device to another. Learners were delighted because they had no one else to turn to for tech advice.

The second part of this project saw tutors teach English through drama. 13 students learnt English through voice work and movement. Tutors improved their student engagement skills, while students gained confidence and improved their pronunciation.
