Regional Digital Inclusion Roadshow for all Qlder’s – Cairns, Rockhampton, Longreach, Mt Isa, Bundaberg

Queensland Government will be presenting a regional digital inclusion roadshow at five locations throughout May and June 2017. People in regional towns will have the opportunity to interact with digital technologies that they might not normally have the opportunity to see – including robots, drones and virtual reality. Presenters and facilitators will talk with people directly in their own communities about how technology can work best for them and what it means in their lives. Being able to use technology can help people to connect with their families and friends, improve their employment potential, transact locally and globally and to make the most of online services available to them. The Roadshow aims to help people understand the benefits offered by the digital age and to make the most of the opportunities it can give them.

Several Champions will be presenting at various Roadshow workshops – Mic Black, Emily de la Pena, Yash Dutt, Dunija Ariyaratne, Doug Panic, and Anne Livingstone.

You can follow updates on social media  – Digital Queensland for Facebook and Twitter.
