Boomer Tech is Back


AARP New Mexico is taking some of today’s trending technology, and getting people’s most burning questions answered through a six-part series that begins Wed., March 3, at 1 p.m. That first class starts with the radical idea of whether people still need a home computer when more cost-effective tools do the same things and will look at some of those other options.

The Boomer Tech series is a partnership with Villages of Santa Fe and AARP featuring presenters Ambrose Ferber, Associate Director of Technology and Chair of Computer Science at Santa Fe Prep, and Ann Church, President of Villages of Santa Fe.

“Villages of Santa Fe has presented Boomer Tech since 2016 and we are happy to share this great program with AARP New Mexico members and friends,” Church said.

“We know that technology, especially since it is constantly changing, can be challenging. We will be presenting information and answering your questions twice a month, online. This is not some nerdy lecture about the inner workings of the computer world, but advice on day-to-day use for getting the most out of your

devices,” she said.

“These classes will also be interactive so we can address specific questions or challenges you might be having with a device or system. Our hope is that the technology you are using is not only useful but also fun,” she said

The Villages’ past classes were in person but like most other things, these will be done virtually using the Zoom platform. Participants can sign up for one class or all of them. Classes are free and open to the public. To register visit: http://aarp.cvent.com/SFe
