Cyber Seniors Educational Program

The Australian Multicultural Foundation (AMF) has developed educational videos in Arabic, Somali and Turkish, providing instruction to viewers on the usage of technological devices and applications, during this period of heightened internet use.

The program titled Cyber Seniors, aims to upskill the elderly from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds to have a better understanding and use of technology, to be able to stay connected and receive up to date information during COVID-19 and other emergency situations. The program also provides parents, grandparents and carers with some insight into the types of online activity children and young people in their care would be participating in.

The educational program guides viewers through different topics such as the benefits of technology, how to install and use popular applications and staying safe when browsing the internet.
