Good digital skills! Help someone learn a new digital skill this holiday.

And you'll be giving them something that will help them all year round.

We know...

  • people need good digital skills or they're excluded from society
  • 1 in 4 won't use devices without continued support
  • 72% of people want face-to-face help to learn new digital skills
  • it's the hook that matters: people aren't driven to "get new digital skills", they want, for example, to learn to video call their family or book something online or find out more about a specific subject

So if you have a bit more time over the holidays and maybe you're with people who don't have such great digital skills, this is the perfect season to help someone - to find out what the hook or the hold-up is and help them with it. 

Maybe it's something connected to the holiday - we've got lots of Christmas-themed guides, from saving money to virtual parties and using technology to stick with New Year's Resolutions. Maybe they've been given a new piece of kit and need help setting up a new device. You're not trying to teach them coding or rocket science - and if you're worried about your teaching skills, here's our top tips for teaching someone.  Happy Holidays!
