Villages of Santa Fe Boomer Tech and Tap students would like to welcome the Prep Community, including grandparents and parents to Thursday Boomer Tech. The goal of Boomer Tech TAP Project is helping seniors navigate the world of computers and the internet; teaching them how to use their devices to communicate with their families and friends, how to be safe on the internet, and get the most out of their devices.

 

Students will help setup on your phone and show you features:

  • Emergency contact info

  • Santa Fe 911

  • Using the flash light

  • Making an emergency call without unlocking phone

 

Boomer Tech Topics. TAP opens with approximately 55 minutes of individual help with phone, laptops, tablets, and other devices (Alexa, watches, etc.) followed by a 20-30 minute discussion on the topic of the day. Students, Ambrose Farber, and Ann Church (from Villages of Santa Fe) participate in the presentation. Q&A follows. Thursdays, 1:30-3:30, Technology Room 21.
