Seniors click on to tech savvy classes
SWITCHED on shire seniors are gaining the skills needed to thrive in the online world.
Mossman Library is again holding its Tech Savvy Seniors computer classes on Monday afternoons.
Douglas Libraries team leader Judy Coulthard said the free classes would help participants gain the skills and confidence needed for digital media proficiency.
“They will be supported by library staff to learn new skills in email, social media, internet banking, smart phones and tablets, online shopping and cybersafety,” Ms Coulthard said.
“These skills will help seniors get connected and take the first step to becoming techsavvy.
“The training is designed to make it easy for people to safely and confidently get connected and learn at their own pace.
“Having these computer skills can make a huge positive difference for seniors as they can connect with friends and family more easily, use internet banking and even pursue further studies.”
Tech Savvy Seniors training courses are held on Mondays from 1pm-3pm.
