What is this session about?

This session, you will learn a general overview of common issues you may come across when using smartphones or computer, as well as some key terminologies to know. Time permitting, we may be able to address some more specific topics as well.

This is a part of “Seniors, IT and Beyond (SIB)” project by Momiji Health Care Society. Throughout the pandemic, many of the seniors in the community have been isolated from their family and others without means to communicate. Some were able to stay in touch through phone calling or using their computers, but many were limited due to unfamiliarity with technology. Through the ongoing, SIB project, Momiji is hoping to teach seniors at Momiji, and within the community, about basic tech knowledge. We also offer one on one sessions, physical exercise and social events as part of the “Seniors, IT and Beyond” project so please check out Momiji’s website/social media, it is free to join and running until the end of March! Eventually, we will cover more topics through the group program as time goes on, so please join us for those sessions as well!
