Tech Savvy Seniors- Smartphone Essentials Workshop CityEast College

Course Outline

Phones used to be all about making calls, but now smartphones can do so much more. Your smartphone (iPhone or Andriod) allows you to access the internet, use social media, get live news updates, play music and video, and much more. They almost universally use touchscreens for control, however, which can be a challenge for people new to the technology.

In this beginners course you will learn how to use the touchscreen, make a call, create contacts, take photos and learn about apps.

Ideal for...

Seniors! It is perfect for those who have never turned on their phone as well as those who use it primarily for phone calls and want to learn more.


• Learn about the basic interface of your iPhone
