Edgewood Communities at Lutheran have announced that they will be partnering with the James Prendergast Library in November to present two technology-focused Best of Times seminars called “What the Tech?!” One seminar will outline general how-to information and a brief buying guide for Apple devices and iOS products while the other seminar focuses on Android/Windows devices and more. The family-friendly program will help people of all ages learn about the latest tech gadgets just in time for the holiday shopping season to begin.
The Apple program will be held on Wednesday, November 15. The Android program will be held on Thursday, November 16. Both programs begin at 6 p.m. and are being held in the Christ Chapel on the Lutheran Campus at 715 Falconer Street. Both programs are free and open to the public.
“After every Best of Times seminar we host, attendees give us suggestions on topics they would like to learn about. One topic that has come up repeatedly in recent months is the different technology options available,” said Edwin Rodriguez Jr., public relations and marketing director for Lutheran. “More and more people are skipping computers and choosing tablets and other smaller devices because of their convenience, portability, and easy-to-use features. Hosting this program right before the holiday shopping season can be a great resource for folks unsure of what to buy,” said Rodriguez.
Rob Hewitt, Learning Lab Tech and Reference Librarian from the Prendergast Library, will be instructing the programs. Hewitt works for the library’s Technology Center that typically provides one-on-one assistance with electronic devices. The library helps over 300 people a year with their technology programming, so they have a lot of experience helping individuals of all ages learn how to use devices, various websites, apps, and more.
“The best part about this program is that our presenter will also be taking some questions from the audience,” said Rodriguez. “If you want to learn about which device is right for you and your family, or even if you already have a technology device that you want to learn more about, this program is for you,” he said.
To RSVP for either of the technology seminars, please call 716-720-9122 or visit www.lutheran-jamestown.org to sign up online. Light refreshments are provided.
