As part of their Digital Engagement Project, Reception House Waterloo Region has created some new Digital Literacy and Skills for Daily Life in Canada video playlists. Videos are available in Arabic, Dari Farsi, Rohingya, Somali, and Tigrinya.
The videos are intended to support newcomers settling in Waterloo Region by providing information and guidance on topics such as digital safety, using a laptop, or navigating local transit using Google Maps. It's part of their project goal to ensure that refugees arriving in Waterloo Region have access to, and can make the best use of digital tools and technologies to improve their lives.
Most of the videos will be useful to any Newcomer who has low digital literacy. The goal of the videos is to help increase digital equity and inclusion among marginalized newcomers in our community.
