Parents Learn New Tech Skills to Support their Children’s Online Schooling


River City Youth Foundation has launched a new bilingual

training program La Escuela Digital (The Digital School) that is helping disadvantaged parents in southeast Austin’s Dove Springs community learn new tech

skills to better support their remote learners at home.

The first phase of the program just concluded with two

weeks of Spanish language training sessions completed. Nearly

20 parents were taught how to communicate and collaborate

using apps such as Zoom. They participated in distance learning

demonstrations and discussed how to tackle the challenges of

online schooling.

All sessions are conducted at River City Youth Foundation’s

technology campus in its outdoor pavilion area. Safety

protocols are enforced including temperature screenings, mask

wearing, and social distancing.

The new training program is made possible with the

support of Google Fiber and Dell Latino Connect.
