Town of Oyster Bay seniors who looking to learn more about their iPad or computer are invited to take part in computer classes to be held at the William P. Bennett Hicksville Community Center, located at 28 West Carl Street in Hicksville, announced Town Councilwoman Michele Johnson. The classes are held by the Education and Assistance Corp (EAC) Inc. to seniors 60 years of age and older through its SeniorNet program and begin on Tuesday, May 27.
“The Town is pleased to extend our partnership with EAC to offer these classes for seniors, in an effort to provide the best computer education to our older residents,” Councilwoman Johnson said. “The classes are wide ranging, and no prior experience with computers is necessary.”
Councilwoman Johnson noted that classes educate older residents on Computer Basics, getting the most out of your iPad, and how to use the internet on an iPad or Tablet. The classes are taught by volunteer instructors and coaches, who strive to make learning fun to help seniors adjust to the ever changing world of technology. There is a modest fee for materials.
“Enrolling in these SeniorNet classes will enable you to learn how to send emails to your grandchildren and even chat with old friends in other states.” Councilwoman Johnson said. “Keeping in touch with your family through technology will open up new experiences for each and every one of you.”
