The Alexandrina Council has announced its third and final Tech Savvy Seniors program, a course designed to get senior citizens comfortable with various computer and technologically-related functions.

Beginning on September 17, the course will run for six weeks and will focus on sharing and attaching photos, using the mySAgov app for licence and registration services as well as learning how to use Windows 10.

Held in association with Telstra, Libraries of SA and the Government of South Australia, the program is open to residents aged 60 and above.

The free program has been designed to give seniors digital freedom through the ability to independently navigate a range of important services.

Since the program was launched in June, a total of 158 seniors have participated in the courses and learned a variety of skills.

Bookings for the six-week course are a must and can be made by logging onto alexandrina.sa.gov.au/libraries or phoning 8555 7000.
