Welcome to the Richmond Community Learning Centre monthly blog. Here you will read about some of the people and activities that make up our community.
Our ‘Person in Focus’ for September is Richard who runs our popular weekly Technology Confidence Class. This relaxed and welcoming group which meets every Monday morning at the Studio 1 Community Hub, is aimed at intermediate users of all ages and from all walks of life. It is also suited to job seekers and provides participants with great tips on how to use and understand their computers, smart phones and tablets.
Richard has been teaching in this field for almost nineteen years and is passionate about showing his students how to like their digital devices and discover all the wonderful things they can do with them including apps from photo management to Facebook. He finds that being able to fulfill his childhood ambition to teach, along with the fact that many of his students have become his friends (as well as friends with each other) has made his experiences, in his own words, ‘a journey of discovery and self-development: without needing a passport!’.
