Computers, Tablets, Smartphones

The Aurora Seniors Computer group is focused on helping our members use their computers and mobile devices as effectively as possible. We hold seminars Tuesday mornings where we present a program about using technology for entertainment, communications, learning and to access the many services that are available to us online. Tuesday afternoons in the computer room are reserved for helping members one-on- one with whatever technical issues they may be dealing with.

If there is no presentation or Tuesday afternoon drop-in session going on the Computer Room is available for individual use by any member of the Aurora Seniors Association. See below for more information and topics coming up for the Tuesday morning seminars.

See our calendar for scheduled days and times.

Information and Activities for January 2020

As we welcome the New Year and the continuing flood of new technology that competes for our attention, what new technology did you get over the holidays? Bring your new toys in to our first Tuesday morning seminar of 2020 on January 7 and tell us about it or if you need some help with it, remember our Tuesday afternoon drop-in sessions. We provide one on one help to members with technology questions or concerns.

On January 7 we will tell you about a member who had a painfully slow laptop and we were able to speed it up so much that she is no longer considering the purchase of a new laptop.

Computer Club Seminars – Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. – We continue to try and cover topics of interest to our members, but as always, we need your help to know what is of interest to you. Let us know.

Tuesday, January 7– Show us the new technology toys that you got over the holidays. We will also be interested in hearing how you like the new room layout and more. Bob will facilitate this session.

Tuesday, January 14 – Share your Adventures and Photographs. Tom Yates will show you how to use a computer software application to combine your photographs with music to entertain friends and family. They look terrific on your TV!

Tuesday, January 21 – Apple day. Herb will talk about some of the new features in iPadOS, along with some apps that take advantage of the new software. He will also tell us more about the new and more powerful chips in the new iPad.

Tuesday, January 28 – Do you sometimes become frustrated or impatient when searching for information on the Internet? Doug will share some tips with us about how to make the most effective use of the available search engines. Find what you are looking for faster.

Technology Education: There are no classroom sessions. Come to the Tuesday afternoon drop-in session for one-on-one help or take advantage of the Cyber-Seniors website. See a computer club member to learn more about Cyber-Seniors or to get registered.

Tuesday drop-in sessions from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm

Every Tuesday, any member who is looking for any kind of technical help can come by and we will try our best to assist. All the help we provide is covered by your payment of the $1 daily activity fee. We provide one-on-one help in these sessions.

Your suggestions and comments about what you might like the computer club to do, courses we could teach or content for our Tuesday sessions is always welcome. Come talk with us or send your suggestions to Bill Ault at wm.ault@rogers.com, Bob Hedenberg at bobhed65@gmail.com or to asacc@auroraseniors.ca.
