The Park Springs of Stone Mountain community is proving that there’s no age limit on learning, even when it comes to technology!

Several residents have enrolled in an eight-week workshop to learn how to use an iPad tablet computer. The once-a-week class, taught by BlueHair Technology Group, covers everything from basic iPad operations to how to download and use free applications from the App store. Participants learn how easily they can find information online, play games, video chat with family members and friends, and even connect with grandchildren on Facebook.

Students are often surprised to find out the capabilities of their iPads. For example, Jennifer Su says she enjoyed using the Map application to locate her birth home in China and learned about NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity while sitting on her couch watching a news program on her tablet. And Nancy Worsham recently used her iPad to look up information on football legend Peyton Manning, who grew up in her hometown.

The class offers Park Springs residents a fun and convenient way to learn about technology and participate in activities that help them stay alert, active and independent.
