  • Lead Scotland - free classes in online safety

    Created: 07/07/2020

    Linking Education and Disability (Lead) Scotland are hosting short classes on Zoom over the next few months to help people to use the internet confidently and safely.

    During lockdown, many of us have had to rely more on using digital devices in everyday life, to connect with friends and family, find information or do shopping. It’s important to feel confident that our personal information is safe when using websites, emailing and social media. Some people with learning impairments, dyslexia or low literacy may also face particular barriers to using the internet safely.

    Lead Scotland's webinars will cover the basics of how to protect yourself against hackers by using strong passwords, how to tell if a website is real or not and how to avoid email and social media scams. It will also cover COVID-19 related scams and answer any questions you might have. Each webinar lasts about 45 minutes and will give the same advice so you only need to attend one.
