What a Digital Champion is:
Digital Champions help people who get devices through Connecting Scotland to do things online like:

  • connecting a device to the internet using the Wi-Fi settings, and putting in the password when they need to
  • sharing documents by attaching them to an email
  • understanding that not all online information and content that they see is reliable
  • The aim is that, with support from Digital Champions, learners will be able to use the internet safely, confidently and effectively.

You do not need to be a technology expert to be a Digital Champion. But you do need to be confident in your own digital skills. You also need patience, enthusiasm and a desire to help others. FULL TRAINING AND SUPPORT IS PROVIDED!

What Digital Champions do
The kinds of things that Digital Champions might help learners to do include:

  • setting up their device
  • setting up an email address
  • showing them how to use video calling
  • showing them how to shop online
