KENINGAU (SABAH), 22 Sept (Bernama) -- Kewujudan Pusat Internet 1Malaysia

(PI1M) bukan sahaja membolehkan penduduk luar bandar mendapat kemudahan capaian

Teknologi Maklumat dan Komunikasi (ICT), malah turut mendedahkan warga emas

kepada teknologi tersebut.

Pengurus PI1M Pekan Bingkor di sini Nor''Ain Salman berkata selain terdapat

ruang melayari internet (internet kafe), pusat internet itu turut menyediakan

latihan komputer kepada anggotanya termasuk warga emas.

"Sejak PI1M ini dibuka pada 15 Oktober 2009, saya telah mengajar pengunaan

komputer kepada ramai warga emas, malah terdapat warga emas yang takut untuk

menggunakan komputer pada permulaan.

"Ada satu ketika itu ada warga emas yang tidak berani sentuh ''mouse''

(tetikus) komputer sebab takut komputer meletup," katanya kepada Bernama

di sini, baru-baru ini.

Nor''Ain, 29, berkata kebanyakan golongan warga emas itu ialah pemimpin

kampung seperti Pengerusi Jawatankuasa Kemajuan dan Keselamatan Kampung

Persekutuan (JKKKP) dan Ketua Kampung yang diajar cara untuk menaip surat dan

mengakses internet bagi memudahkan mereka menghasilkan kertas kerja bagi urusan

pentadbiran peringkat kampung.

ICT-WARGA EMAS 2 KENINGAU

Katanya, PI1M Pekan Bingkor setakat ini mempunyai 1,730 anggota yang

berdaftar, dan daripada jumlah tersebut seramai 39 anggota merupakan warga emas

yang berumur 60 tahun ke atas.

"Hendak jadi anggota PI1M perlu bayar yuran keanggotaan sebanyak RM5 untuk

seumur hidup, dan keanggotaan kita terbahagi kepada anggota biasa iaitu yang

datang untuk melayari internet dan menjalani latihan komputer dan satu lagi

anggota yang ingin menggunakan Wifi PI1M," katanya.

Nor''Ain berkata kelas latihan komputer itu diadakan setiap Selasa, Rabu dan

Khamis dan terdapat sesi pagi dan petang, dan tempoh yang diperlukan untuk

mengajar golongan itu adalah antara tiga hingga empat bulan.

Sementara itu, Budan Ansuab, 68, berkata dia berasa bertuah kerana

berpeluang mempelajari komputer yang membolehkannya mendapat kemahiran menaip

surat, di samping menimba pengetahuan dengan menggunakan kemudahan ICT yang

disediakan di PI1M.

"Saya gembira dengan penubuhan PI1M ini yang mana saya dapat sedikit

pengalaman. Sebelum datang sini saya tidak tahu menaip sekarang sudah boleh

menaip sedikit dan rasa bangga kawasan kampung saya ini ada kemudahan seumpama

ini," katanya.

ICT-WARGA EMAS 3 KENINGAU

Budan yang juga Pengerusi JKKK Kampung Bingkor Baru di sini mengakui pada

permulaan mempelajari komputer, dia berasa kekok dan takut namun lama-kelamaan

dia berasa selesa selepas didedahkan mengenai cara penggunaan peralatan

komputer.

Kini beliau tidak lagi gementar untuk menggunakan komputer, bukan sahaja

untuk menulis surat tetapi juga untuk membuat kertas kerja ataupun projek untuk

memohon peruntukan bagi kampungnya, katanya dengan bangga.

Malah beliau kini memiliki sebuah komputer riba dan peralatan

mencetak di rumahnya bagi memudahkan urusan kerjanya, katanya.

Bagi Ketua Kampung Tangkongan, Bingkor Malik Pinsil, 72, berkata pusat

tersebut telah mendedahkannya kepada komputer, yang sebelum ini tidak terlintas

untuk beliau mempelajarinya.

"Zaman dahulu waktu saya kecil mana ada semua ini dan saya pun belum pernah

tengok secara dekat sebegini dengan menggunakan komputer tetapi sekarang sudah

boleh menggunakan komputer biarpun tidak cekap," katanya.

ICT-WARGA EMAS 4 (AKHIR) KENINGAU

Malik berkata ia satu perkara baik untuk warga emas sepertinya kerana

membolehkan dia celik IT, di samping mendapat pendedahan berhubung dunia luar

menerusi capaian internet.

Dalam pada itu, Ketua Bahagian Pembangunan Luar Bandar Suruhanjaya

Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM) Uzer Tajudin berkata PI1M ditubuhkan

sebagai inisiatif kerajaan untuk merapatkan jurang digital antara penduduk luar

bandar dengan bandar.

Setakat ini terdapat 359 PI1M yang beroperasi di seluruh negara dan daripada

jumlah ini sebanyak 47 PI1M terdapat di Sabah, dan kira-kira 700,000 penduduk

luar bandar di seluruh negara kini telah mendapat manfaat kemudahan akses ICT

sejak penubuhan PI1M pada 2007.

PI1M sebelum ini dikenali sebagai Pusat Jalurlebar Komuniti (PJK), katanya.
