Need help using your computers, laptops, tablets, phone but are in lockdown or isolation? We are offering help online one on one with our team at Living Connected. For individual help you can contact us on Skype so find Living Connected (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Helen Hasan (helen.hasan) on Skype and make contact. Skype call us whenever these contacts are shown as available (i.e. with a green dot). If you need help getting on to Skype or want to use another online way of contacting us please email or phone. WhatsApp is also installed on the phone so you can try that using our phone number 0409 753 808 .
Zoom Dropin Meetings: Pre-COVID19, Living Connected conducted weekly or fortnightly Dropin Sessions face to face. Helpers would be matched with those who dropped in for help. We now hold weekly Virtually Dropin Sessions on Zoom mostly at the times we held the face to face session. A few of our team are joining the Zoom meetings and we are already having some lively group catchups, We can also follow our practice of 1-on-1 help using Zoom breakout rooms. This seems to work well and not as difficult as you might think.
Zoom – We have just been funded by the NSW State Government to run a new free service supporting clubs and groups to continue to meet using technology while they cannot meet face to face. We will provide, at no cost, assistance with the technical setup, hosting engaging sessions and skilling up novice users so no-one misses out.
