When we were growing up, before television, we played cards, paper and pencil games, board games, jigsaws etc.

We now have digital versions of all these as well as newer ones such as Sudoku and video games. Most of these are on-line but you can download apps to your device via a WiFi connection.

This workshop set will cover some of these apps that can afford you fun, stimulate your brain and in some cases, interaction with others.

During the sessions we will work with people in a hands-on situation if necessary doing the following:
- Find Application or link
- Pull to Desktop
- Work through Settings
- Set up logins if necessary
- With each activity we will have a focus on what “not to press”
- Take them through the game/activity (in a digital environment)

Workshop Sets are a new concept from SeniorNet. There are 4 sessions that are linked but can be booked separately depending on your requirements and current knowledge.
