Are you feeling behind the times with today’s computer technology? Do you see everyone using their iPads, iPods, iPhones, Smartphones, and Tablets and ask yourself: “What are these products all about? Can I ever learn to use them? Do you already own one of these devices but wish to learn more about them?”

The Middle Village Adult Center is offering a free “21st Century Computer Technology Seminar” for seniors (60+) on Tuesday, June 3, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Seniors will be paired up with over 35 high school volunteers from Grover Cleveland High School, who will demonstrate how to navigate today’s iPad, iPhone, Android Tablet and Phone in a fun, interactive and exciting way! In addition, the center’s computer program coordinator, Charna Barak, will demonstrate the basics of the modern day computer and be on hand to answer questions.

The seminar will be hands-on for seniors to see, touch and learn how today’s modern technology can enhance their lives. This seminar is sponsored by the Middle Village Adult Center in coordination with NYC Council Member Elizabeth Crowley. Sign up in advance is suggested but not mandatory.

The Middle Village Adult Center, sponsored by the Rabbinical Seminary of America, is a vibrant and very popular meeting place for senior citizens. Its full schedule of fitness and recreational classes keep senior citizens very busy, socially active and fulfilled. From Monday through Friday seniors fill up their day with such classes as: aerobics-to-music, muscle toning, chair-and-mat yoga, Sit-and-be-Fit, Zumba, Pilates, tai chi, watercolor painting and a full schedule of computer classes ranging from beginners, intermediate, Excel, Word, digital Photography & Powerpoint and 21st Century Computer Technology, which teaches seniors how to use an iPad, iPhone, Tablet and eReaders such as Kindle and Nook.

In addition, the Center serves a freshly prepared lunch every day, and provides roundtrip transportation to and from the Center, medical appointments and food shopping.

To sign up for the June 3rd seminar or to find out more about the other activities, call or visit the Middle Village Adult Center at 69-10 75 St., Middle Village, (718) 894-3441.
