TechMum's online courses

Dear Principals

 Something to share with your families

Techmums is a charity that has moved in Covid-lockdown from face-to-face support work to provide 8 short online learning modules for mums.

Their intent as a charity is to support mums on their journey with technology. The mini-modules help mums explore “at your own pace or with a group of friends or family members.”

#Techmums CEO is Dr Sue Black the social entrepreneur and coder (Kirsty Young interviews her here on Desert Island Discs (https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b3b4m5)

Increasingly, there will be a broad online learning offer post-Covid for families by schools and charities nationally. This is a great one and very simple. And free. Matches our parents needs and helps them do basic tech and coding. The #Techmums free modules would / could be great for all our families if we can circulate to them and get parents and their children engaged. Works for PP kids’ mums, but is relevant for everyone.

Where can I read more about Techmum?

#techmumsTV and #techmums were both featured in Forbes and The Financial Times and in The Guardian

 Parents: quick, free online course to develop your tech skills

The charity #techmums has created a great series of free resources to help you develop your tech skills over the summer. 8 topics are covered in total, with subjects ranging from how to get started with the internet and email, through to how to internet safety and how to bank online. Each topic takes around twenty minutes to complete - you can do it on your mobile phone or any other device, and the content is straightforward and clearly presented. 

The charity was founded by the inspirational Dame Sue Black. Today, Sue is a well-known professor of computer science; but at the age of 25 she was a single mother to three children, living in a women's refuge. She enrolled in night school, and eventually earned her PHD aged 39. The goal of her charity is to help other mothers become familiar, confident, and excited about the use of technology in their personal, professional, and parenting lives.
