60+ Technology

Instructor: Sam Chamberline

Technology changes too fast and some people feel left behind.  This class will sort out the confusion with Apple devices (iPad or iPhone) and get you connected quickly and easily to family and friends.

The focus will be on the capabilities of the iOS system and how it is easily manipulated to suit your needs.  iCloud, Apple ID, WiFi, accessibility, bluetooth, and privacy are just some of the features which will be highlighted.  As needs change, the class will change.

 An iPad or iPhone is required.  Please bring your device with you.  I am looking forward to meeting you to answer your technology questions. 



Programming for those 60+ is provided by the generous support of the Area Agency on Aging.
