Technology is universally acknowledged as an increasingly vital productivity and communications tool for everyone. Frequently immigrants, especially refugees, have had no experience with computers – at all.
Lack of computer experience can be a serious hindrance toward their adjustment. Newcomers are eager to learn about computers so they can read native-language publications online, communicate with relatives back home, and learn English.
To address this need, we introduced our Smart Classroom in summer 2008 with major support from MasterCard Worldwide. We were able to expand on an earlier substantial contribution from Hewlett Packard and set up a classroom with 12 stations and state-of-the-art instructional equipment.
Today, hundreds of adult immigrants can learn basic computer skills, study for a variety of tests, prepare resumes and apply for jobs online, and perform a variety of other computer-assisted tasks. Click here if you want to find out about volunteering to help newcomers with computer skills.
There is no fee to attend. Instructor costs are underwritten by the Adult Education and Literacy Program of the St. Louis City Public Schools, the Office of Refugee Resettlement of the Department of Health and Human Services and other private and public sources.
