TechLab - Digital Literacy for Immigrants
We invite you to meet with representative of the TechLab (SQA Education) that offers English Language and Technology courses that prepare and empower students in the pursuit of a brighter future. The SQA goal is to “digitally include” students and give them tools that will allow them to grow in their professional and personal lives.
SQA Education sponsors TECH_LAB, a technology program designed to bring Digital Literacy to the adult immigrant population in New York. SQA combines technology and innovative pedagogy to promote achievement and social change.
Techlab is a blended learning course. Combining face-to-face lessons and online instructional components, students develop digital projects and complete activities through practical tools that allow them to grow in their professional and personal lives. Classes usually meet 2 hours a week for 30 weeks. Learning is augmented through the online classroom: moodle.sqafoundation.org.
Techlab teaches practical technology skills from basics like learning the keyboard, logging in, creating secure passwords and using the Internet to an introduction to the Cloud, creating documents and other applications and tools that help you navigate your daily digital life and work. CLASSES ARE FREE AND ALL ADULTS ARE WELCOME!
SQA Education was established in January of 2019 after the related work of the SQA Foundation in the fields of arts and education in the United States since 1994, and additionally in Brazil since 2006.
