Computers and technology are wonderful things – if you know how to use them. Nowadays, people are directed and re-routed to websites and online tools for everything from doctors’ visits to meetings with co-workers and even families.
Rebuild Communities NC is partnering with AARP’s Senior Planet to provide people 50 years and older a series of workshops to help them navigate an increasingly digital world.
In the month of June, seniors can learn about a variety of topics, from managing your privacy online to telemedicine and My Chart.
The classes will be held at the Vance County Senior Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:30 a.m. to 12 noon, according to information from Edythe Thompson with Rebuild Communities NC.
Here’s a list of the scheduled dates and topics:
Whether you’re hoping to stay connected with family and friends, interested in learning new technology, exploring entrepreneurship, or looking for a job, Digital Skills Ready @ 50+ classes and workshops offer trainings on a wide range of technologies, from video conferencing to online job search tools to office productivity software.
