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.

EnTECH Computer Club is an enthusiastic group of students from the University of Waterloo who aim to improve the lives of older adults living in the Waterloo region through technology. Through intergeneration teaching, EnTECH hopes to educate and engage older adults about technology adoption and literacy. For more information, please visit www.entech.club.
