We run formal lessons for users of Windows-based personal computers (Computing Skills Group). However, as iPads are far simpler to use, we have found it preferable instead to have a facility for total beginners and a separate “self-help” group for those with more experience. This was modelled originally on our very successful Computers Self-Help group. There is a leader and someone on-hand with technical skills, but the emphasis is on learning from each other by sharing experience, ideas, problems, solutions, etc.
• iPad Help for Beginners - For new owners of iPads. Leader – Jean Farguson. Jean gives help on a one-to-one basis by introducing the new owner to the iPad, guiding them through the basics and showing them how useful the iPad can be. For many people this is sufficient.
• iPad Self-Help Group For those who have gained some experience in using their iPad and wish to know more about it and its uses. The group leader leader is Philip Watts, This group meets on the third Thursday of each month, normally in members’ homes.
Spaces are currently available in iPad Self-Help for Beginners. There is currently a waiting list for the iPad Self-help Group but spaces do become available. Alternatively, if we have enough people on the waiting list then we will look at running a second iPad Self-Help Group. So, don’t be despondent! If you are interested in joining a group or at least putting yourself on the waiting list to join, contact the leader by clicking on their name above.
Continuing via Zoom during Covid pandemic.
