Learn how to use your iPad and enjoy the ease of touch screen technology so you can keep in touch, have fun, entertain your family and friends, learn, search and create! iPads can do a lot of the things your computer can do, and they can be used or carried pretty much anywhere. This introductory 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.  Please note: this workshop is for iPad Tablets only – if you have an android tablet please see our ‘Introduction to Android Tablets’ workshops.

 In this beginners workshop you will learn how to:

  • use the iPad touchscreen and gestures
  • launch and download apps
  • take photos and add calendar events
  • browse the web on your iPad

 What to bring:

  • Your fully charged iPad, and charger
  • Details of passwords for your device access (especially your Apple ID which you will need to install new apps with) email address and other login passwords, etc
  • Notepad and pen

All workshops 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.
