Senior Planet Training (in association with AARP)
Beginning October, the TechConnect Staff will be offering an array of Senior Planet training in the form of Explore Tech Lectures. These programs include one-off lectures that introduce popular tech topics and themes clearly and concisely. Individual lectures aim to explain the general purpose of a device or concept, its usefulness, and valuable tips and tricks. Lectures do not offer hands-on exposure to the presented topic and are limited to 25 participants.
Our Interactive Workshops allow participants to practice using a website or app already introduced in a lecture. Workshops are led by a trainer and offer hands-on activities. Workshops will run for about 75-90 minutes and be capped at 10 participants
