The first Free Digital Literacy training for the Indigenous Australian community in Broome kicked off in the first quarter of 2020. The collaboration between illuminance Solutions and The University of Notre Dame Australia and their Broome Campus teach essential technology skills to contribute to the reduction of the digital literacy divide in the Indigenous Australian community.
Digital literacy is essential for all Australians, and illuminance Solutions answered to National Reconciliation Week in 2018 with the launch of illuminance Training’s program to teach essential technology skills and an introduction to Microsoft Office 365 software. In February 2020 the first of four training sessions open to all ages in Broome’s Indigenous community will run on-site in collaboration with The University of Notre Dame Australia Broome Campus.
Bumma Bippera Media 98.7FM spoke with Nilesh on the West Tech Assemblage 2019 that put focus on the digital literacy divide in our Indigenous Australian community and how illuminance Solutions have been working with universities in Western Australia to support the Indigenous Australian people with the right knowledge and even out the levels of digital literacy in our society.
