Our November session began with sharing of ‘work in progress’ on blog sites and twitter feeds, with the topic of the day ‘Smart TV’s’. To set the scene we watched a ‘Download this Show’ segment on the new Apple TV’s; then headed to Terry’s house where he presented a most informative session on the role of Chromecasting in converting a digital television into a Smart TV; demonstrated how mobile phones can be used to manage content on Smart TV’s and showed us many other possibilities available through Smart TV’s. For most of us it was quite a leap into the future. The handout Terry prepared for us should prove very handy. Thank you, Terry.
Our ‘Mentors’ working group is planning the new ‘Tech Savvy Drop In’ and will meet on Wednesday 2 December from 10 am to 12 midday at Bev’s for a planning session.
The ‘Tech Savvy Drop In’ aims to support members who would like to develop knowledge and skills in using computer technology – whether PC’s, laptops, tablets and even mobiles. Tech Savvy members will be on hand at the Drop In to support particular learning needs – for example, to send an email; use the camera and manage photos; set up a letter; send an SMS, and more.
You can find out more details about the ‘Tech Savvy Drop In’ in the 2016 Course and Activity Guide.
