Company A1 provides support in the field of digital education

The beginning of the school year is an occasion for the youngest to start new life habits and learn new skills, and this also applies to the generation of grandparents, with whom they spend most of their free time. From this autumn until the end of the year, A1 Serbia will organize free educational workshops for 15 primary schools, and in cooperation with partners will provide internet access and mobile devices, as well as education in over 15 institutions for housing elderly people, which are in the social protection system.

The digital era has brought with it many changes, so it is equally important for children, as well as the elderly, to learn how to navigate and be safe in the digital world. Interactive workshops that will mark the beginning of the school year will be led by Ana Mirković, a psychologist, one of the founders of the Institute for Digital Communications and an expert in education in the field of digital communications. In addition to the education of children, the education will be aimed at empowering parents, educators and pedagogues, as well as motivating them to talk more constructively with children about various topics that fall into the domain of digital literacy.

Some of the key topics will be challenges on social networks, fraud in the digital space, privacy and digital violence, time spent on the Internet. It will be discussed how children consume information on the Internet, how they distinguish good from bad intentions, true information from misinformation. Answers to these and other questions will ensure safe and freer access to technologies, but also greater trust and mutual understanding between children and parents.

This program will also pay attention to older people who often do not have adequate support from the environment in using computers and smartphones. In order to empower the elderly population to step safely into the digital world, A1 Serbia, in cooperation with the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veterans and Social Affairs and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), will organize digital education for the oldest citizens and employees who are in over 15 institutions for housing the elderly. As part of the activities, the A1 Serbia company will donate internet access and mobile devices such as phones and tablets, with an unlimited internet tariff, while UNFPA will participate in providing advisory assistance to the elderly.

For a good start, this autumn, in addition to knowledge about new technologies, A1 also provided packages for junior and senior digital adventure: Start tariff with Junior add-on, which includes unlimited chat for Messenger, Whatsapp and Viber, 2.5MB of internet and 400 min/SMS. For the elderly, there is the Start tariff with the Senior supplement, which includes unlimited minutes in the network and unlimited Viber, along with 500MB of internet and 400 min/SMS.

The quality of the network and attractive offers are certainly one of the reasons that, according to RATEL*’s official report, A1 is the network to which the largest number of mobile users in Serbia are switching for the second year in a row.
