Local Technology University Offers iPad Instruction To Senior Citizens

Senior citizens who feel like today’s technology has left them behind have an opportunity to catch up!

This summer, University of Advancing Technology (UAT) Professors Angel Fuentes, Matthew Marquit, and Yvonne Watterson are teaching free technology classes on iPad instruction to seniors at four Tempe Public Library locations.

Tempe Tech Classes are geared for residents age 50+, who have little experience with computers and want to learn how to use an iPad. Classes hold up to 10 people and will run through Aug. 19, 2015. iPads will be provided for classroom use.

“Some of the individuals in these classes have never seen nor touched an iPad.”

“We have received positive feedback from the iPad classes. The seniors love it and I enjoy sharing knowledge with others in the community. Some of the individuals in these classes have never seen nor touched an iPad, and now they can FaceTime with their family or play games and they know they aren’t going to break the device,” said Professor Fuentes.
