To celebrate Get Online Week 2019, which runs across the nation from October 15-21, the Adelaide Plains Library is hosting special guest, Kristy Schirmer at the Two Wells Bowling Club (Old Port Wakefield Road) on Tuesday, October 15 at 1pm.
The theme of Get Online Week 2019 is “Get more out of life online!”, but what is Get Online Week?
It began in 2007 in the United Kingdom as an initiative to bring digital inclusion to national attention, with the first events held in Australia last year, basically to help people make the most of the internet.
Approximately 2.5 million people are currently not online in Australia, and four million people have limited digital skills.
With more and more government services and private providers going online, it is vital everyone can take part in our increasingly digital world.
Kristy Schirmer is a social media consultant who has worked in the health promotion industry for more than 15 years, and last year, was recognised as one of ‘40 under 40’ business leaders in South Australia by Deloitte and the Adelaide InDaily.
She is passionate about social justice, focusing on strong communities and equality to promote good health.
Kristy will be speaking about how to assess health information online, digital health literacy tips, and provide suggestions for evidence-based health apps to try out.
It is essential to book your seats (which include a complimentary ‘old fashioned’ afternoon tea prepared by the Two Wells Bowling Club ladies), and a lucky door ticket.
Bookings are to be made at the Two Wells Public Library during opening hours on 8520 2100 or alternatively email – firstname.lastname@example.org – as seats are strictly limited.
