"Computers, smartphones and tablets allow you to stay in touch with distant family and friends, keep up with current events and open up a whole new world of online shopping, paying bills, banking and holiday planning," Moree Community College campus coordinator Catherine Davis said.

"Don't miss out on the benefits of being connected and participating in the digital world. Face-to-face classes are a great place to start learning and asking questions."

Moree Community College is also seeking volunteers interested in becoming Be Connected digital mentors. All mentors will be provided with training and support to help local seniors learn digital skills and become technology savvy.
