Welcome to the world of Chromebooks. Chromebooks are a type of computer from Google with a simple design that is great for beginners. This program is for older adults who don’t own a computer and want to get online and learn the basics.
Participants will receive help in a 1-on-1 start-up appointment at the library before the program begins. During 4 in-person sessions, we will cover basic skills like using a Chromebook, connecting to the internet, creating a Google account and checking email.
Participants will be contacted by phone in September to confirm attendance and make a start-up appointment to get set up on a Chromebook. Call 519-886-1310 ext 129 to register or sign up online.
This program is presented in collaboration with EnTech from the University of Waterloo.
