Technology & learning

Grow your independence with programs that focus on reading, writing, numeracy and technology skills. Led by swara’s dedicated support workers, our development programs are for everybody.

Develop Your Skills at swara

The swara Technology and Learning Program is designed to empower individuals through a comprehensive approach to literacy, numeracy, and technology. In recognising the pivotal role of these core skills, Participants engage in tailored literacy and numeracy modules, and technology. By merging the realms of literacy, numeracy, and technology, our program aims to break down barriers, providing our participants the tools they need to navigate a world increasingly shaped by digital innovation and empower every  for a future of boundless possibilities.

The Learning Centre is located at swara in Woolloongabba, Brisbane. The Learning Centre enables swara participants to access centre-based and online programs that support the development of reading, writing, numeracy, Auslan and technology skills.

With programs led by swara’s fantastic team, you can build your capacity, become independent and achieve your full potential.

The Learning and Technology Program at swara uses a multi-sensory approach to assist participants in learning. These programs help with everyday skills using fun, interactive and accessible learning materials.

We facilitate classes by dividing participants into groups of the same skill level, with each group focusing on subjects that suit your individual progress. The goal is to assist participants in gaining skills and independence, as well as to help you understand and control your NDIS budget.

We also offer a weekly session to teach basic Auslan communication to those who are interested.

The swara team tailor learning programs based on the needs and abilities of each individual, with the goal of helping all participants to achieve their full potential. We as a team believe that we are all differently abled and are special in our own ways and no one should be deprived of opportunities. Every day we thrive and do our best to provide a loving service in action for the participants.

Individualised Learning

swara’s technology and learning programs are normally delivered as a group activity. During activities, participants are grouped based on personal skill level.

While we deliver learning programs as a group, we tailor activities to the needs and abilities of each individual. Our aim is to help you achieve your full potential, whatever your goals. We believe that we are all differently abled and are special in our own ways, so no one should be deprived of opportunities.

In addition to our technology and learning program and NDIS services, participants can also work 1:1 with our staff. These 1:1 sessions are ideal for anyone looking to work on a particular skill or for those who need more individualised learning.

Computer Skills

The world is going digital, which is why swara offers regular sessions on technology and computer skills.

Our technology programs cover things like basic computer skills and cyber awareness. These programs allow you to enjoy the benefits of technology without the risk.

The Learning Centre at swara is equipped with a number of computers that are available for your use, so you don’t need your own computer to join us.

Quiet Space

swara offers quiet spaces in different parts of the centre. Our quiet spaces are for participants who are elderly or sensitive to noise and who would rather have their own space. You are welcome to use quiet spaces for socialising with friends, reading, writing or learning new skills. Our quiet spaces include:

The Library: Participants can read or borrow books, listen and watch documentaries on the computer, practice typing skills and more.

The Quiet Room: A place for you to relax, listen to music and have some “me time” away from the crowd. It is very therapeutic and beneficial for people combating different disabilities.

The Quiet Art: Designed especially for participants interested in quiet artwork and historic sessions over a cup of tea or coffee.
