WHAT DO I NEED TO TAKE PART IN THIS TRIVIA?

We suggest using a Computer, Laptop or Tablet as Device #1 which you will use to connect to Zoom and watch your Trivia Host present the questions.
We suggest that you use a smartphone as Device #2, which will act your Trivia “Buzzer”
WHAT DO I NEED TO PREPARE?
We will be using a website call Kahoot! to play Trivia.
In order to use your device as a Trivia “Buzzer” and buzz in your answers, you can either:
1. Download the Kahoot! App via the Google Play Store (Android) or Apple App Store OR
2. Visit https://kahoot.it/ via a web browser on your device
Whether you choose to download the app or use the web browser version, you will be prompted to enter the “Game Pin” to start playing
WHAT HAPPENS ON TRIVIA DAY?
On Trivia Day, you will use Device #1 to connect to the Zoom webinar as per usual (we will send out the Zoom links the day prior). Once connected to Zoom, your hosts will tell you the Kahoot! PIN, which you will enter into your Kahoot app or web browser
The Hosts will tell you the Questions and you will see 4 possible answers on screen (via Zoom). You will use your smartphone to buzz in the correct answer
CAN I ASK FRIENDS TO JOIN IN?
Absolutely!!! Especially friends who have been a little tech shy, and would love to give it a go. It is “Get Online Week” after all, and we have 3 great prizes to be won! Please ask them to email us with a request to participate
Without Covid around, we would’ve treated the Quiz Quasimodo to a night of fine dining.
Instead, first prize is a choice of:
$150 Voucher for Providoor (Where you can choose to order food from one of Melbourne’s best restaurants and have a chef prepared meal delivered to your door)
If you’re not much of a foodie, you can choose from either a $150 Coles or Woolworths Voucher
$100 Voucher for Providoor, Coles or Woolworths (you choose!)
$50 Voucher for Providoor, Coles or Woolworths (you choose!)
So, gather your friends and tell them about the upcoming ReadyTechGo Trivia! We are on the hunt for the 2020 Knowledge Master, and would love for you all to join… the more the merrier!!!

EXCITING WORKSHOP NEWS…
Firstly, a huge Thank You to everyone who has attended one of our weekly online workshops, now conducted remotely via Zoom. When Covid-19 first hit in March, we were worried about the impacts on the business, as ReadyTechGo is known for “Face to Face training”.
As a small business, we are nimble and able to pivot quickly to adapt to the changing environment, taking our in-home visits and group workshops all online.
We’ve been so pleased to hear how well remote one to one lessons and remote group training has gone, so Thank you for adapting with us!
On the good news front, we have secured a further grant from BeConnected (the government initiative aimed at helping Older Adults gain digital skills) to extend our workshops for another year (Thank you to everyone who takes the time to register on the BeConnected website and nominate ReadyTechGo as their Learning Centre. This shows the government that learners are attending and helps them to identify which organisations to provide grants to).
This means we can continue to provide free group training until June 2021 – YAY!!!
We understand how important it is to have digital skills, especially during this pandemic where all essential services are moving online. From October, we will be increasing our webinars to twice per week, giving you more opportunity to learn (and be entertained by Matt).
So if you have a workshop topic in mind, please email us your workshop topic requests!
October also celebrates Get Online Week. From Monday 19 October, we will be holding extra online events including an Online Trivia (with prizes to be won). So keep an eye out for upcoming newsletters with more details.
Stay well, and stay healthy!
