 Introduction:


A series of relaxed drop-in sessions for anyone who wants to refine their internet skills – or for complete beginners. Bring your own laptops (preferred) or use one of ours. Just come and have a go amongst friends – you could save a fortune!
Topics to be covered can include:

  • Getting your laptops into shape – cleaning up and making safe.
  • Keeping safe online – FREE computer security and how to avoid scams
  • Sending and receiving emails and adding attachments.
  • Searching for the best deals online – e.g. Car Insurance, Utilities, claiming Asda vouchers
  • Using FREE online tools such as Google Mail, Calendar, Translator and Picasa to look after your holiday snaps.
  • Using ‘Office’ type software (including the FREE Open Office or Office Libre)
  • Setting up a Christmas Card list and printing out address labels

. . . and for those who wish to go further . . .we could set up in a corner a bit of drawing of house plans etc. using the FREE Google SketchUp or even write your own web site pages (time and previous experience permitting

All this for just £5 per session to cover the costs of the Broadband provision and resource maintenance (room hire and tutor* costs are completely FREE)

. . . and . . . please, please, PLEASE remember to bring with you a note of any email addresses, passwords and usernames that you might use – plus your mobile phone if that is how you are reminded of them

*Tutored by Geoff Howard and Keiron McGeever – both with (too many!) years of experience of organising and teaching computing in schools
