Computer Basics for Seniors
This workshop is for anyone who feels like a beginner when it comes to using the computer, and is particularly useful for older adults! Starting with the very basics, students will learn essential skills and terminology that will unmask the mystery of the computer. Topics include using the mouse and keyboard, booting and logging in, finding and running programs, using the internet, reading email, viewing photos and an introduction to folders and files. Please bring email addresses and passwords to class. Students may use their own laptops if they have their login ID and password. Made possible by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs and the Greenfield Senior Center.
