October marks the beginning of computer learning month across the globe. The initiative was introduced to proactively encourage people to learn and engage more with the ever-expanding world of computer technology.
Originally the month was aimed at demographics who may have missed their chance to learn and grow with technology. Emphasis on participation was geared towards cases where these opportunities may not have been available for socio-economic reasons or a generational gap denied them from computer related education.
However, as the scale of technology available to us grows so too has the importance of Computer Learning Month. The movement is no longer solely aimed at beginners but serves to encourage computer users of all abilities to further their own abilities as well as learning new skills.
The use of computer technology has been implemented into every facet of modern life and for most careers some form of computer literacy and ability is an essential requirement for workers. People all over Ireland are urged to get involved with Computer Learning Month to improve their skills.
Beginners are encouraged to enquire with local schools, libraries and county or city councils about computer classes in their area to help start themselves on the right path in technology.
