JWOC’s Digital Literacy classes provide students with an opportunity to explore how technology works and can be applied to their real life. Here are some case studies of students who wanted to share what they learned from our program:
Savoleak is a 14-year old student from Thmey Village, around 2km away from JWOC. She has been enrolled on our Digital Literacy Class for 2 terms. Her father fixes TVs, her mother is a housewife and she has two siblings. She is the only person in her family who can use a computer, and she said that her mother is really happy. She said that she wishes her school taught computer classes. She now feels more confident because she can type, insert tables in Microsoft Word and use google to do research for her school work.
Seyha is 22 years old and he is originally from Banteay Meanchey province and has moved to live in SR 5 years ago with his auntie. He is a Free classes volunteer in English project to assist our staff during the week. Besides from that he takes the opportunity to enroll on our Digital Literacy class to improve his computer skills. He said before he worked as a service and receptionist but cannot use the computer at all and used to study computer in one school but still cannot use it because there were a little practice. After he studied Digital Literacy at JWOC for 1 term, he now feel more confident to use computer at his workplace and hope to learn more in the next coming term.

Srey Pich is 17 years old and she is a high school student. Her parents are sellers. She enrolled in English classes for 2 terms and at Khmer school her favorite subjects are Khmer and Maths because these subjects are very practical and she said that “English is also really help because if I study abroad so I can use English to communicate.
