Students and families need connectivity to participate safely and responsibly in today’s online world. Here’s how AT&T is helping bridge the “digital divide” between people who can take advantage of all the internet has to offer, and those who can’t.

Skills

  • Digital Navigators are being trained across the country to help communities join the online world by providing support for at-home connectivity, computers, and digital skills.

    With the Public Library Association, we’re developing resources and workshops to raise awareness of Federal Broadband Benefits and improve digital skills.

    Learn more about AT&T’s work to help manage families’ online experience.

Value

  • Many people without internet at home overlook the benefits of signing up. But increasingly, connectivity provides access to essential services and opens a world of resources that can support learning. That's why AT&T created The Achievery, an innovative and free educational platform which offers standards-aligned curriculum and entertaining videos for K-12 students everywhere they learn – at home, in the community or in their classrooms.

The Youth Development Department of Ella Austin Community Center is a year-round project, composed of two programs: the After School Program and the Summer Enrichment Program.

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM

The After School Program offers homework assistance to students, aged 6 – 14 years of age (Elementary – Middle School grades). It provides educational and recreational activities, fine arts (art, music, drama, and creative writing), library usage, and a computer lab.

Students are provided with after-school hot meals catered by the San Antonio Food Bank.

Positive self-esteem is promoted through motivational speakers, field trips to college campuses, and the celebration of cultures.

The program tracks the academic development of each student by observing their grade cards and progress reports from their schools. Academic development is a very crucial component of the After School Program and degreed/certified staff offer tutoring to youth in areas where they may be academically deficient. Additionally, recreation, socialization skills, positive self-esteem, and character building are promoted in the program.

Tuition-free scholarships for our Youth Development Programs are available for youth ages 6-15.

SUMMER ENRICHMENT PROGRAM

The Summer Enrichment Program occurs during the summer months. Youth have a daily schedule that provides time for sports and recreation, board games, problem-solving/brain teaser activities, physical fitness, fine arts (which usually includes a drama or musical production by summer’s end), computer lab, and library usage, a book club, motivational speakers, field trips and career exploration.

Youth are provided with lunch and an afternoon snack each day.

Participants' academic skills are enhanced by practices and drills in subjects of the grade level that they have just completed using the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) curriculum.

STEM PROGRAM

Ella Austin Community Center incorporates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math into all of its youth programs.

We also offer a year-round Science and Math Academy for qualified eleven- to fifteen-year-olds in partnership with St. Philip’s College, The Center of Excellence for Mathematics, and for Sciences. The academy focuses on fun topics with high-demand careers such as engineering, biotechnology, game design, alternative energy, chemistry, environmental science, and more.

San Antonio Public Library (SAPL) and the City of San Antonio’s Department of Human Services (DHS) are piloting a new free device lending program aimed at improving digital literacy and fostering connection.

The Device Lending Program for Older Adults will allow Bexar County residents ages 60 years or older to check out a free iPad from one of five DHS-managed senior centers throughout the city. Borrowers can keep the device at home for up to six months to help them connect with friends and family, browse the internet, connect with a health care provider, engage in leisure activities, and use mobile apps.

A personal internet connection is not required as the devices will come with a free wireless cellular connection to access the internet.

“San Antonio Public Library is committed to bridging the digital divide for everyone in San Antonio,” said Ramiro S. Salazar, Director, San Antonio Public Library. “This program underscores the Library’s dedication to equipping older adults not only with vital 21st century resources, but also to services that connect them with friends, family, and loved ones in new and meaningful ways.”

Among the many benefits of using a digital device, borrowers will be able to access millions of digital resources available through SAPL including eBooks, eAudiobooks, music, movies, and online databases.

For more information, call 210-207-2500 or chat with library staff at ask.mysapl.org. For information on other library programs and services, visit mysapl.org.

Devices will be available for check-out beginning October 5 from these DHS senior centers:

  • Normoyle Senior Center, 700 Culberson, 78211
  • West End Park Senior Center, 1226 N.W. 18th St., 78207

  • Southside Lions Senior Center, 3303 Pecan Valley Drive, 78210
  • District 5 Senior Center, 2701 S. Presa, 78210

A San Antonio Public Library card is required to check out a device, and SAPL staff can help those interested in the program sign up for a free library account. Anyone who borrows an iPad will have access to free tech support and training opportunities from program partners AARP Senior Planet, OATS and OASIS to help users get the most out of their borrowed device.

We have innovative technologies that assist visually impaired patrons in utilizing the digital programs we offer.

For use outside of the library:

  • iPads are available for check out for up to six weeks. These iPads are capable of using Siri, and have a VoiceOver function to open up the apps we offer, such as Hoopla (music, movies, audiobooks), Mango Languages, or cloudLibrary (ebooks and audiobooks).

For use within the library:

  • Focus 40 Blue Wireless Braille Display, which connects to computers, iPads, and phones using Bluetooth, allowing navigation through documents and applications using the latest Braille technology.
  • The Braille Display also converts text to both contracted braille and un-contracted braille. This text is displayed on a Perkins-style keyboard, which makes it simple to read, as it follows along, mirroring word for word at your own pace.
  • The Pearl Portable Reading Solution is essentially a camera on a folding post, which brings visually impaired patrons convenient portable access to any reading material they bring to BiblioTech. The folding camera opens easily and connects to a PC using a USB port, and works with OpenBook Software.
  • OpenBook software takes an exact picture of the material, whether it be a book, a newspaper, or a magazine, using the Pearl Portable Reading Solution. It mirrors the image using the Pearl Scanner and reads aloud word for word. OpenBook will adjust the speed and tone of the reader, as well as the size, fonts, and color of the text to make your reading experience more comfortable.

Additionally, we provide:

  • Magic Large Print Keyboard, with much larger keys than a standard keyboard.
  • JAWS (Job Access With Speech) software, which is a screen reader for Windows that works with most computer applications.
  • Magic Zoom, which magnifies the screen so you can zoom in to the desired screen size. Each innovative tool comes with its very own braille instructions, which are available to patrons upon request.

Visually impaired.
