Bowling Green, OH (August 18, 2015) – Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc. (WCCOA) will hold a series of tablet classes for a variety of ages and skill levels this fall at the Wood County Senior Center, located at 305 N. Main St. in Bowling Green.
WCCOA, in partnership with the Bowling Green State University School of Media and Communication, will conduct a research study involving the use of tablets on Tuesdays, from 6-7 p.m. September 1-November 3 (no class October 13). Participants will learn various sills using their own Samsung Galaxy, Apple iPad, or other Android tablet. iPads are available for those without a device. The Wood County District Public Library will be used as a location for some participants of this class.
The Technology and Health Group will meet Tuesdays, from 3:30-4:30 p.m. September 8-November 10 (no class October 13). Technology offers many resources for health management. From apps to smartwatches to diabetic insoles to the immense volume of information available online, it would seem the resources are endless. We are interested in how participants might use (or not use) technology for their own health.
The Silver Tekkies Tablet Class will be held on Mondays, from 4-5 p.m. September 14-November 9 (no class October 12). This class is in partnership with the BGSU Chapman Learning Community. Teachers will be BGSU students. Participants will learn how to get creative with their iPad. Classes educate participants in the areas of vacation planning, finding music, Pinterest, Facebook, games, and more. Class size is limited to ten participants.
Space is limited for all classes. Classes are free and open to any age. To register, contact WCCOA at (419) 353-5661, (800) 367-4935 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
