Local seniors wanting to get a better handle on their computers, iPads and smart phones are being offered free consultations with experienced digital tutors at the Byron Community Centre.
With the help of seven volunteer digital tutors and a small grant from the Be Connected Program, a computer and IT room was set up at the Byron Community Centre last week.
At least 17 local seniors were given one-on-one tuition in all aspects of IT and many were introduced to the Be Connected Learning Portal.
They worked through courses and topics at their own pace with tutors close at hand.
Local Anjali Walsh came to the event with a list of questions about her technology. She bought her laptop, IPad, and IPhone in with her.
‘I feel enormously relieved after years of finding my own way to finally have solutions to all my computer, IPad, IPhone dilemmas,’ Ms Walsh said.
‘The staff and tutors were kind and wonderfully informative.’
