Stepping into the digital world is not an easy task for just anyone. Can you imagine how much more difficult it can be for one of our senior citizens? That is why a non-profit organization is stepping in to help the elderly gain some basics on computer usage.
Whether the senior citizen is a beginner or a more advanced user, Senior TechEd is with them every step of the way. They offer classes such as “Getting Started with Your PC” for those with no computer skills, to “Cloud Computing” for those more advanced. There are even certain applications that the instructors teach that range from Google Photos to Ancestry.com.
“Our courses are designed for individual attention via hands-on experience with the objective of building confidence for new users and enhancing the skills of more experienced users,” stated on Senior TechEd’s Mission page. “Our program is attuned to the specific needs of adults, to enable them to enjoy and use the latest technologies on their laptops, tablets and smartphones.”
The classes are capped at 8 people so the students get personal attention. All of the courses are taught at Knightdale Recreation Center and St. James United Methodist Church and will begin in the fall on Sept. 4.
The non-profit organization that is celebrating its 22nd anniversary this year offers nearly 3,200 courses in technology training on iPads, computers and more.
