The tech-savvy course seniors gave attendees confidence to enjoy interaction with new technology.

A new group of tech-savvy seniors has enjoyed a five-week course of classes held at the Mulwala Library.

Each Wednesday from 10am until midday, those who attended the program were provided with information and skills based around an introduction to computers, tablets, the internet and email.

The program finished in April and those who attended reported they not only really enjoyed the classes, but they also gained a lot of knowledge and confidence in the use of various technologies available to them.

Some comments were;

“I have gained so much more confidence in using the computer and knowing that the Mulwala Library is available to provide information and assistance in solving issues and all for free too. I now really enjoy creating and completing jigsaw puzzles that I have created from my own photos. Simply from being shown how to download the app from the internet,” said one class graduate.

“The course was very enlightening and makes one feel excited and not afraid to explore the many different possibilities of the technology,” said another.

“Being much more aware of the capabilities of the technologies that are available to us on the internet as well as the access to the free services that are available at the Mulwala Library, which is a brilliant venue for us to enjoy, is very much appreciated,” reported one newly tech-savvy senior.

“Course was very enjoyable, enlightening and easy to understand. The facilitator Rhonda Wheeler was excellent and was able to explain and communicate the technology in easy to understand language.”

“All the staff at the Mulwala Library are great and extremely helpful.”

“We all feel far more confident in using and understanding the technology and we are both excited and enthusiastic about continuing on and learning more.”
