Partnerships key for educational outcomes

Updated: Jan 21

Partnerships with service and community organisations assist with co-designing strategies and developing educational programs so that older adults develop strong digital skills for improved health and wellbeing.

Associate Professor Bernardo Figueiredo spoke to journalist Mitch Ziems in an article published in the Institute of Community Directors Australia, about the importance of partnerships in delivering digital competency outcomes for older adults and how Shaping Connections are providing resources and research to assist in bridging the digital divide.
