On Friday, March 24th, The Expert Collective's FLY Program hosted its second digital literacy workshop in partnership with The Better Business Bureau (BBB). The "Scambusters: An Interactive Game with BBB" event aimed to help attendees recognize the signs of scams and learn how to avoid them.
The event began by emphasizing the role of organizations like the BBB in educating consumers and empowering them.
The "Scambusters: An Interactive Game with BBB" workshop was designed to help participants learn how to identify and avoid scams, which can be especially challenging for newcomers and individuals with limited experience with technology.
The workshop included an interactive game that simulated various scam scenarios, allowing participants to practice their skills in a safe and supportive environment.
In addition to the digital literacy workshop, FLY distributed over 20 free laptops to deserving newcomers and underrepresented students who may need access to the technology necessary to succeed in school and beyond. This great initiative helps to bridge the digital divide and level the playing field for all students, regardless of their socioeconomic background.
Overall, the "Scambusters: An Interactive Game with BBB" workshop was a valuable resource for anyone looking to improve their digital literacy skills and learn how to protect themselves from scams. The event also demonstrated FLY's commitment to providing underrepresented students with access to the technology and resources they need to succeed.
