Are you a senior who wants to learn how to use a computer?
Do you have a computer at home but you are hesitant to use it? Do you want to learn how to send and receive emails from your grandchildren?
Do you want to keep your brain active by searching the Internet for information or playing educational games like Scrabble on the computer?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions and you are interested in learning some basic computer skills, the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) is sponsoring a free one-on-one computer tutoring program for seniors.
The tutoring sessions will be geared towards seniors who have only a basic knowledge of computers.
Each leaner will be partnered with a volunteer tutor and, after completing a computer skills self-assessment, will work on basic skills such as using a mouse, saving files, searching the Internet, and setting up an email account. If you are interested in being part of this program, contact Jennifer Findlay, Literacy Outreach co-ordinator, at 250-833-2095 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
