What does Digital Literacy mean?

Digital literacy (to know your way around computers) is important to establishing your presence in the modern world. Lacking the ability to use digital technologies means that there are many things you simply cannot do or access. Possessing digital literacy allows you to improve the efficiency, access to things, fulfilment, and happiness in your life.

About Eva

Being of a mature age group myself, I understand how fear of using computers can be daunting for some individuals. My patience and life experience makes it easier for adults of all ages to learn how to operate computers, laptops and smartphones.

Participants are made up of people who have not been part of the workforce, are retired, or have never been introduced to the digital age or need to re-skill to be able to take up a new career path. They simply want to find an easier and more effective way to take care of their bill payments, find and contact family members and friends through social media. They want to eliminate the need to physically go to external agencies such as industry associations or banks, which can sometimes be a strain on the person due to age or illness.

Taking care of business from the comfort of your own home will definitely be a big plus for all adults and the more mature generations, that can be provided through these services.

Eva can also continue to provide services over the phone or pay a visit to your homes, should you have any questions or problems negotiating the computers.

Eva's services can be provided on an individual basis or in small groups of up to 10 people. In bigger groups, individual care can be lost due to time restraints. The customer can decide what will be more suitable for them at the first introduction meeting and at an affordable price for everyone, where the tutoring can be tailored to the individual needs of the participant.
