We are looking for a dynamic, self-motivated and people-focused Digital Support Worker to join our team and engage our communities as part of the inDigiMOB digital inclusion project. Additionally, the position involves the supervision of PAW Media’s Language and Culture Room, which houses the Warlpiri Media Archive. The position involves travel to remote locations across the Greater Tanami region. Please see attached position description for a full explanation of the role.
inDigiMOB is a partnership between First Nations Media Australia (FNMA) and Telstra. Since 2016 PAW Media has been contracted by inDigiMOB to roll out a digital inclusion project in Yuendumu and surrounding communities. The Digital Support Worker will deliver inDigiMOB activities on behalf of PAW Media to fulfil this contract.
inDigiMOB seeks to improve digital inclusion for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in remote parts of the Northern Territory. It does this by forming partnerships with communities and local organisations and offering a range of supports tailored to meet individuals’ needs.
inDigiMOB emphasises informal, peer-to-peer learning that values the experiences and knowledge of Aboriginal people. Learning is activity based, inclusive, responsive to community wishes, and, where relevant, builds on existing projects.
Our inDigiMOB digital support worker will increase digital inclusion in remote communities by improving digital awareness and digital literacy, fostering the participation and growth of local ‘digital mentors’, and creating relevant learning resources. The role involves supporting and delivering activities, workshops and projects that improve digital skills and knowledge so remote community residents can take full advantage of the communication technologies that are shaping our futures. At Yuendumu, the digital support worker will be based in our Language and Culture Room, where they will also help residents acquire the basic skills needed to get online to access our digital media archives, to share content, and to engage and train community members in Keeping Culture software. From time to time the digital support worker will be required to support other PAW Media activities which may include video, radio and music production, and community events.
