Tech Savvy Seniors – Introduction to Android Tablets

Course Overview

Tap into the world of tablets with our Introduction to Android Tablets! Tablets are a revolutionary new way of accessing the Internet, playing games and communicating. They can do a lot of the things your computer can do, and they can be used or carried pretty much anywhere.

This workshop is your first step into the world of tablets. It’s for people who have never used a tablet but are interested in finding out what they can do. You don’t need to have a lot of PC or mobile smartphone experience – although smartphone experience can help, since tablets are essentially super-sized phones.

Join us to learn all about tablets so that you can navigate the digital landscape with confidence and ease in no time!

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across Northern and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Epping, Mt Druitt, Richmond, and Ryde. Enrol now!
