DIGITALL PROGRAM OVERVIEW AND DETAILS

DigitALL aims to increase the overall participation of Canadians in the digital economy by offering accessible programming to increase digital literacy and improve technology use across Manitoba.

Program delivery will be focused on:

  • Individuals from under-represented groups and those living in under-served locations; and
  • K-12 Teachers in Manitoba who are interested in using technology in their classroom to increase digital literacy among the students and to enhance collaboration with guardians and among other teachers.

All training sessions and learning materials are free to the participants. To find classes and workshops near you, click on one of the green buttons above.


DIGITAL LITERACY – WHAT COVID-19 HAS BROUGHT TO LIGHT

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed greater emphasis on the Internet as a lifeline to continue school, perform work, connect with family and friends, and access health or financial information. Unfortunately, now more than ever, people who lack digital skills and computers are being left out.

Tech Mantoba’s DigitALL program aims to increase the overall participation of Canadians in the digital economy by offering accessible programming to increase digital literacy and improve technology use across Manitoba - we have simply become more creative now with delivery.

To address this need, Tech Manitoba has partnered with Computers For Schools to provide to date over 240 refurbished, sanitized computers, to those most in need in Manitoba. This nomination initiative is now closed – however a rolling intake program is currently in development. Please continue to check back for updates and access.  

We can continue to support more effectively if our community can donate more computers to Computers for Schools to be wiped clean of all data, sanitized, refurbished, and distributed. If you know anyone willing to donate lightly used devices, please drop off at 18 Terracon Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba from Monday - Friday 9am - 4pm.

Free Computer Skills Learning Materials

To increase the overall participation of Canadians in the digital economy, Tech Manitoba’s DigitALL program is offering accessible programming, refurbished computers, and free learning materials to increase digital literacy and improve technology use across Manitoba. 

We started in 2019 with free in-person 9-hr workshop style classes offered in communities across the province. To see if we are currently in your town, click here.  

We will soon be providing refurbished computers based on rolling intake to low income families and individuals. The computers will come with a “how to set up guide” in the form of a printed booklet, as well as learning videos loaded right on the desktop. Those same learning videos and printed booklets will be available to outside organizations and individuals as needed or requested. For more information, please email digitalliteracy@techmanitoba.ca
