If you are over 60 and would like to improve your tech skills, meet like-minded people, and create and share your stories, then Yarra Plenty Regional Libraries’ Social Seniors program is for you.
After last year’s successful introduction, YPRL will be running Social Seniors at three branches this year – Lalor (February), Eltham (March) and Ivanhoe (April).
Social Seniors is a free three-week workshop that will show you how to make short films on a mobile device (mobile phone or tablet), then share them to a private group on Facebook. You will also get tips and advice on internet privacy and security, to make your experience with social media safer and more positive.
Social Seniors is designed to help older Australians see technology as a useful tool for social connection and leisure, while equipping them with the skills and confidence to use the internet more regularly. These technical skills will help Australians stay connected to their communities and to the services they need throughout their lives.
The Social Seniors program is supported by The Victorian Seniors Card program, Telstra, and Public Libraries Victoria. The next session will start at Lalor Library on Friday 7 February. For bookings or more information, please call 9464 1864 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
