From the Classroom to Learning Online21-January-2021
Pauline Lacey from Bangor delivers Digital Literacy courses to adult learners over the age of 50. Before lockdown Pauline was working at a number of different community venues. Since then, she has supported all learners to make the transition from classroom learning to online learning. With her patience and experience, all learners managed to get online and are now attending the sessions regularly.
One of her learners says,
“Pauline is so patient with each of us individually - how she does it is beyond me! She never makes us feel stupid - as I am - and she has to jump around due to our having different devices. She is marvellous. It is also great – and reassuring - to see each other over the internet in social sense too.”
Pauline supports the learners inclusively as they all have individual requirements. Therefore Pauline ensures she has time after each session to support them all individually with any issues they may have digitally. For Pauline helping her learners overcome barriers is something she is very passionate about, and constructively works with our regional team and partner staff as needed to ensure each and every learner is encouraged and supported to meet their learning goals.
“I hope to inspire adults back into learning by welcoming them into a positive and creative environment, by demonstrating that it is never too late to learn a new skill and that digital literacy is something to be embraced. This has never been more important than during the current epidemic.”
With her attitude and commitment to her role Pauline is truly inspirational. Well done Pauline!
