    Seniors to get tips on “better internet experience” (Photograph supplied)


Seniors will be treated to a free class on internet safety today in Hamilton.

The Department of ICT Policy and Innovation is hosting the information session from 10am to 2.30pm at the St Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church Centennial Hall.

The event will focus on four “critical skills” aimed at creating a better internet experience: respect, responsibility, reasoning and resilience.

Topics include social media, online banking and smartphones.

Students from Mount St Agnes Academy will be on hand to give one-on-one instruction and tech-savvy seniors will assist through the department’s Seniors Teaching Seniors programme.

A light lunch will be served at the church, at 59 Victoria Street.

Anyone wishing to attend should contact the Department of ICT Policy and Innovation by calling 294-2774 or by e-mailing cybertips@gov.bm
