Internet Skills Worshops Series

In 2017/18 I developed a series of workshops to teach Internet skills to clients of a Scarborough organization, The Second Chance Foundation, which was founded with the mission to provide a variety of social supports to formerly incarcerated women (you can read more about that here). I launched the workshop series in the spring of 2018, covering the following topics:

  1. Introduction to the basics of using the internet (how it works, how to find information)
  2. How to evaluate online information sources (CRAAP, fake news, understanding Wikipedia)
  3. Learning about digital privacy (passwords, location settings, browser settings)
