Staying Connected with Mi Connections

The Mi team have certainly been busy over these past few months. As always, the Mi Connections team are committed to ensuring that PSS people are given every opportunity to get connected and develop their digital skills. Here is a insight of some of the exciting digital activities that have been taking place:

This year, our Project Worker, Julian Connor made it his mission to promote the national Get Online Week in a new and innovative way by launching a Twitter competition.

Mi Connections provided a jar of sweets and then people were challenged, to guess the number of sweets in the jar and tweet their guess using the #GOLW16. The aim was to promote the service, encourage people to register and access Twitter, and to get PSS people talking and thinking about their digital skills.

The fabulous Jackie Carroll from Front of House was the winner and was given a £50 Love2Shop Voucher. Well done Jacky!

Digital Skills

Julian also delivered a series of four digital skill drop-in sessions in the Cwtch, for both staff and service users, to support them to develop their digital skills. During these sessions, Julian supported people to learn about email, social media, YouTube, how to access Learn My Way – an online learning resource- and helped people explore the internet and its endless possibilities.

We really believe in removing any barriers that people experience in getting connected- so if you or someone you know would benefit from a bit of extra help to get online and develop your’re digital skills, please contact the Mi connections team on 0151 702-5592

Digi Club

Working with the wonderful team at Making Days North, we have set up a weekly digital learning club attended by people who access the service. The club meets at Walton Life Rooms, where they come together to develop their experience of using IT, tablet and digital technology.The Mi connections team have also set up a weekly digi club at the Fusion Centre. Clients have even brought in their own tablets / iPads to learn how to use it more effectively.
