Know Your Gizmo
Under the innovative Know Your Gizmo project, Albury High School students volunteered to help local older people better understand and use smart phones, tablets and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
The project has lots of benefits including:
- giving young people a meaningful volunteering opportunity
- helping different generations develop respect for their differing skills
- helping older people better understand and use modern technology.
With NSW Government support, Know Your Gizmo [ZIP, 3.6MB]resources are now available to download.
The project was developed by Albury Wodonga Volunteer Resource Bureau, with a grant from the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN).
