The Modbury Digital Hub is launched!


Mayor Miriam Smith and Digital Hub volunteer George split screen their speech via iPads and the Smart TV

Thursday morning saw the Federal Government launch the four SA Digital Hubs of Charles Sturt, Salisbury, Adelaide Hills and Modbury at four simultaneous special events.

Mayor Miriam Smith guided the Modbury Hub launch, featuring a video provided by Digital Hub Coordinator Chris Campbell demonstrating the impact that the Digital Hub technologies and training program has had on the community. As one resident explained, he finds the sessions invaluable and ‘would have lost all of his hair’ if it wasn’t for Chris and his team of trainers.

Hub Coordinator Chris Campbell talks digital literacy

Federal Member for Makin Tony Zappia also praised the new NBN rollout and how Digital Hubs are about increasing the digital literacy of the community.

Some of the new technologies were demonstrated via the split screen cross between the Mayor and Digital Hub volunteers on iPads, and between the trainers in different parts of the Library. The event concluded with some words from Coordinator Chris and a live stream from Charles Sturt where Federal Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy,  Stephen Conroy officially launched the SA Digital Hubs.

Congratulations to the team, our volunteers, and also the community for the great asset the Digital Hub has already proven to be!
