Available Classes

Tablets are a way of accessing the internet, playing games and communicating. They can do a lot of the things your computer can do, and they can be used or carried pretty much anywhere. This workshop is for people who have never used a tablet but are interested in finding out what they can do. You don’t need to have a lot of PC or mobile smartphone experience to attend.  Please note: this workshop is for Android Tablets only – if you have an iPad please see our ‘Introduction to iPad’ workshops.

 In this beginners’ workshop you will learn:

  • The hardware and basic interface of a tablet
  • Touchscreens and gestures
  • Launching and downloading apps such as games, web browser, communication tools and more
  • Taking photos and adding calendar events
  • Browsing the web on your tablet.

What to bring:

  • Your fully charged android tablet, and charger
  • Notepad and pen
  • Details of passwords for your device, email address and other login passwords, etc

Courses will be held at WEA House, with no more than 10 participants per class.

The Tech Savvy Seniors program is for seniors aged 60 years and above, and Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander elders aged 50 years and above in NSW who:

  •  Have little or no experience in using technologies
  •  Require additional skills and confidence to use and adapt to new technologies

This program (held in partnership with the NSW Government and Telstra) delivers government-funded digital literacy training to seniors so they can develop the skills and confidence to access information and services online, or connect with family and friends.
