Indochinese Elderly Refugees Association (IERA) is a multi-service organisation that helps older people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds preserve and promote their cultural heritage.

IERA saw a need for technology classes where our members could come together and learn digital skills in a comfortable setting. Our classes are designed to identify and meet each learner’s needs. We use the Be Connected resources as a beginner’s guide to cover the basics of computer use. However, depending on the needs of each participant, whether they have specific difficulties or impairments, our staffs often tailors the lessons utilizing other sources such as online games, social media, or YouTube. “The question we ask every day is: ‘What do you want to learn and what is the best way to ensure your needs are met?’”

Please feel free to contact us at (03) 9429 1307 if you have any query about our technology training class.
