Kristy Roche, who recently started with the Benalla Library in the role of Community Programs and Education Officer, has asked us to share an event with U3A members. The event is Sharing Memories being held on the 12th October 2016 at 1.30pm. A downloadable A4 poster is available below. Please let Kristy know if you would like to attend, or call her on 5762 2069 should you have any questions.
"Tech Savvy for Seniors classes will return from October – December 2016 and again from February – April 2017. Information flyers are available at the library. Preference will be given to new participants for beginner sessions. If you attended last year you could consider the intermediate level sessions." Foibles Spring Newsletter
The Tech Savvy Seniors program is a funded, statewide initiative offered through libraries across the state. It funds training and also provides on-line training resources which we have been able to draw upon for our classes
Beginners classes are being held on Tuesday mornings (10 to 12) from 4 October-13 December. The classes are organised in blocks of five with the first 5 weeks for computers (Windows or Apple) and the next 5 weeks for iPads/iPhones. At the beginner level preference has to be given to those who did not attend Tech Savvy Seniors classes at the library last year.
Intermediate level classes are being offered on a fortnightly basis for people who attended previous Tech Savvy Seniors courses at the library or are comfortable with their devices on Thursday mornings from 10 to 12.
U3A members who undertake Tech Savvy Seniors classes at the library can follow up with sessions offered at U3A or the Senior Citizens. As older learners, we benefit from plugging in to a range of learning experiences (and reminders of them!) over time.
More sessions for both levels are being held at the library from February to April next year – if this time suits you better, your name can be placed on a waiting list. Find out more by dropping in to Benalla's Sir Edward 'Weary' Dunlop Learning Centre, or downloading the flier below.
