IT-Tastic!! (360G-SCVO-a110N00000TALVHQA5)

Our intention is that our existing community volunteers will run this project. We intend to run basic fun tutorials that will encourage peer to peer and cross generational learning between local residents and also within families. Our target audience is primarily the over 65 age range integrated with support and involvement from our younger school age residents. We want to support people who are both physically isolated but also feel isolated due to the barriers that a lack of IT knowledge can create between for example grandparents & grandchildren. The activities will include specific subject tutorials but also less formal drop in 'fix-it’ sessions. The sessions will run one or two afternoons a week after school. In order that we retain a level of flexibility within the building we plan to use portable IT devices such as ipad's and/or tablets. We would also use gaming equipment to encourage cross generational interaction through games commonly played by younger generations. We also plan to invite people to bring in their console's and games to the hall so that we could hold a games evening where people can challenge each other in a fun tournament type of idea. We would hope to encourage people to bring along their own devises with them so that they could continue learning at home and become familiar with their equipment. However, the equipment we require from this funding will allow people to allow those who cannot afford their own equipment, convince those who don’t currently own the equipment due to not feeling confident or not yet seeing the advantages of having one in their own home. To having a convenient option where there reliable an equipment at the hall ready and set up for them to start learning.

Recipient Org: Description The local community is at the heart of everything we do. Mount Vernon Community Hall in the East end of Glasgow is owned by Glasgow City Council . However it is run solely by the community volunteers. Our aim is to provide a safe, clean affordable hub for local residents and those from surrounding areas to access a range of activities and services including those designed to encourage learning. Our target learners are specifically older people and those with disabilities we hope to improve their digital skills. Young people will also benefit through homework clubs, and we intend to promote intergenerational learning to link the two generations as and when appropriate to do so. In addition to this we will look into to establishing referrals from our local Jobcentre as we are aware that they have issues getting older people who have limited digital skills back into the work place.
