Who says senior citizens are technologically illiterate? To dispel that rumor, MSAD#44 Adult and Continuing Education staff presented three “Introduction to Technology Forums” in September and October.

Topics included Intro to Facebook, Pinterest, and Skype; Intro to I-PAD; and Intro to Kindle and E-Reader. Lois Ruff and Lauren Gailitis showed us how to set up accounts, how to ensure digital security, and how to download apps, many of which are free.

The classes were small, but we students were eager participants. We asked a myriad of questions, explored many options and, with knowledgeable and very patient mentors, learned a lot and had a great time.

Thanks to Jeannie Waite, Adult Ed director, and to our super teachers for developing this forum and for supporting us in connecting with the technological world!

Keep tuned for announcements regarding future programs to be offered, perhaps before spring.  Stay connected!
