Education

I am pleased to advise that I will be resuming my series of small group workshops starting in April! These will continue through the Spring and Summer months. All workshops will be two sessions in length and will run on two consecutive Wednesday mornings or two consecutive Friday mornings from 9:30am to 11:00am. These will take place once again in my home based conference room with a maximum of only 4 participants per session. The cost for each of these two-session workshops remains only $50.00. If any of these are of interest to you please do let me know so we can get you scheduled in. Please do advise if you have a preference for Wednesday or Friday mornings.

This two session workshop is designed for those who are new to the Apple iPad or iPhone, or could simply use a refresher. This workshop will have you mastering all of the basic features and functions, from managing email to surfing the internet, using Facetime, the camera, iCloud, customizing your home screen, playing your favourite games and knowing the key settings to make the most of your iPad or iPhone whether at home or on the go.

2. ANDROID TABLETS AND PHONES FOR BEGINNERS

Some of us may have received an Android tablet or phone as a gift or acquired one simply because there was no other replacement for our beloved flip phone! Well.. don’t despair because these incredibly intelligent devices are remarkably easy to use – and fun — once you acquire some basic skills! Attend this two session workshop and we’ll have you mastering all of the basic features and functions of your Android tablet or phone including the various ways of staying in touch with others, managing your email, surfing the internet, customizing your home screen, adding your favourite apps, playing your favourite games, sharing your photos and so much more. You will also learn about the key settings you can adjust to make the most of your Android tablet or phone whether at home or on the go.

3. FINALLY, A SIMPLE WAY TO MANAGE ALL OF YOUR PHOTOS

This two session workshop will give you the skills you need to be confident in working with your digital photos, regardless of where they reside; your PC, your Mac or any of your mobile devices including your iPhone/iPad or Android device. We will do this using the free Google Photos application, the newest entry in the photo management arena from the makers of Picasa. With Google Photos, your photos from all of your devices can be automatically consolidated, stored and organized in one location, easily accessible from anywhere there is an internet connection. Google Photos makes it easy to organize, edit and share your photos in a variety of ways without having to be a technological wizard! Let me show you how.

4. BUILD YOUR OWN PHOTO BOOK

This new, two session workshop has been introduced in response to many requests. Participants will learn how to make prints and create professional looking photography albums from their digital photos. Brilliant, full colour photography albums, complete with your customized text, which used to cost hundreds – if not thousands – of dollars, can now be produced for less than $30.00 through any of the on-line photo centre sites, including Walmart, Staples and Costco. So come join us and we’ll create your first album together!
