Basic Computer Skills

Overview

Having a basic computer literacy level is important in the current everyday life. Since 2015, this IMU Cares project has been training basic PowerPoint presentation skills to children from our community partners, such as Dignity for Children Foundation and Rumah Charis (Home for the Children). This has shown to empower them with essential presentation skills, at the same time improving their confidence.

This project now aims to cover the basic computer skills that develops communication skill and team work among children. The target audience now will be extended to school students, refugee children, and children from other welfare homes. The target audience will be grouped according to their maturity level in using computers. They will be divided into 2 groups:

  1. Basic
  2. Intermediate

A maximum of 10-12 children per group is optimal per session.

Each session will require IMU staff and students to facilitate the training. The roles are listed below:

Role Description Number Needed
Session Coordinator To coordinate the session 2 per session
Trainer To train student on basic computer and power point 1 per session
Coach To coach the individual participant 10 – 12 per session

Our future plan is to teach children at United Learning Centre (learning centre for refugee children)
on basic computer skills, as IMU Cares will donate a few computers to the learning centre.
