View Classes

Learn computer and digital skills with our Tech Savvy Seniors courses in Sydney.

The internet helps you stay in touch with friends and loved ones. Social media sites like Facebook and Twitter let you see what’s happening in the lives of friends, and allows you to let them know what’s going on in yours. Other tools like YouTube and Flickr allow you to share videos and photos with them (and the world). Finally, there are tools like Skype that let you know when people are online and talk to them in an instant – and for free.

The Tech Savvy Seniors Course is a government-funded program designed to assist seniors to acquire the technical skills required for everyday life in the digital age. If you, a friend, or a relative want to understand the wide world of the internet and make use of its resources and social connections, then we offer a short and friendly course that will the doors to the digital world. The hands-on workshop is designed to assist you with ‘everyday’ online tasks such as how to use social media confidently with online safety awareness. In this course, you will be provided with an overview of Social Media, in particular Facebook, and how to establish and use a Facebook account for social connection. We emphasise teaching you how to tailor settings to give you control of privacy, data protection, and security.
