ComputerPals Mission

Our mission is to educate seniors in the use of computers and other technology (phones & tablets) as a way of enriching their lives and making them more self-reliant. We bridge the generation gap and assist seniors to find ways to benefit the community through their collective experience and knowledge.


ComputerPals Training Courses, Special Interest Groups, and Social Activities

Classes are conducted on Tuesday - Thursdays in school terms. They are generally of one and a half hours (sometimes over 5 weeks, or 3 hour courses, one-off courses may also occasionally run on Fridays. Every Monday morning is a closed session devoted to equipment maintenance. Monday afternoons host meetings of Committee, "Train the Trainer" sessions and our Special Interest Groups(see the calendar link [above] for actual times and dates) - DigiPals (Digital Photography), WriterPals (Creative Writing), and MemoryPals (preserve your memories).

TabPals (tablets and phones) meet on a Friday(Apple iPads/iPhones at 11am; and Android system Tablets/phones at 1pm.

As well as our computing sessions and meetings, we arrange Social Outings (approximately one per Term) and free (once a Term) Morning Teas (which is also a General Meeting) with excellent Guest Speakers for our members and guests. We have developed training courses for our Senior Citizens so that they can learn about computers and technology without feeling under pressure to keep up with the "youngsters". Membership is open to residents over the age of 55 years.


 

Who Provides Our Training?

Tutoring is provided by a band of volunteers, prepared to share their knowledge and give their time, so that we can provide training at minimum cost. Being a member of ASCCA ( Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association ), we have access to ASCCA's resources and links to other Seniors' Computing Clubs throughout Australia. If you would like to become involved as a tutor, or if you know someone who has the skills but is not yet a member, please contact our Tutor Co-ordinator.
