Lake Land College’s IT Club to assist Tech Savvy Saturday

Posted on March 13, 2019

The Charleston LifeSpan Center will host Tech Savvy Saturday, March 23 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. Students from the Lake Land College IT Club will assist with technology devices including how to use email, app functions and social media. This event is open to the public and to all ages.

“Seniors in a digital world can be easily overwhelmed by all the new technology. Simple training in using computers, tablets and smart phones can help seniors to stay connected with their families, friends and communities. This is especially important for seniors who wish to live independently,” LifeSpan Center Program/Public Relations Director Chris Garver said.

Participants are encouraged to bring devices from home such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop in order to follow along with the group or for one-on-one assistance with one of the students.

The LifeSpan Center is hosting a second Tech Savvy Saturday in partnership with the Lake Land College IT Club on Saturday, April 13 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Tech Savvy Saturday is sponsored by AARP. For more information and to pre-register, call the LifeSpan Center at 217-639-5150.
