Where Older Adults Come to Learn, Explore and Share Smart Technology
The Senior Tech Club Summer Academy
The Senior Tech Club wants to help in these challenging times.
We think that our technology can help and support us as we stay at home to battle Covid-19. We agree with a recent article in Scientific American that proposed,
Whether you are quarantined, working remotely or just being cautious, now is the perfect time to practice using technology in socially healthy ways.
We think this recommendation is particularly relevant to older adults. So we are making changes to our programs to support your technology use in the current crisis.
Our objective is simple, we want to help you stay connected, engaged and always learning.
Here are four changes to our programs to help you stay connected, engaged and learning during these unsettling times:
Free Club Access
The Senior Tech Club provides technology training specifically for older adults. we call our lessons at the SeniorTechCLub.com site Recipes. Senior Tech Recipes are the brain-friendly way for older adults to learn specific functions on your devices.
During these times, access to our recipes is FREE. No membership or even login is required. Here are two approaches:
Browse the Catalog
We’re proud of our catalog of over a hundred Recipes and Nuggets. Browse the catalog to find a lesson that you want to explore. It’s simple.
Free Live Online Training
Over the past three years I have taught dozens of classes and have taught hundreds of students how to stay connected and engaged with their smartphones and tablets.
We can’t maintain social distance in classroom but we can take our classroom online. Every week we offer FREE online classes that we call Senior Tech Tuesdays. The Zoom session starts at 10:00 AM CST.
Senior Tech Tuesdays are FREE. All that is required is that you register with Zoom before the class to receive your meeting link. Once you register, the same link can be used for all Tuesday sessions through May 2021.
Use the button below to learn more at the Senior Tech Tuesdays online page and to register for your Zoom link.
News & Nuggets Newsletter
News & Nuggets is the newsletter of the Senior Tech Club. Every issue of News & Nuggets features a tip that is relevant to older adults. The featured tip might be a topic like using your iPhone as a magnifier, scanning QR codes, searching for apps or quickly closing all of your open tabs in your Safari web browser. Another feature of the regular email that people appreciate is our recommendations about IOS updates. We will recommend when the time is right to proceed with the latest IOS update.
During the Coronavirus Crisis I want to increase the frequency of the emails so that we can include more relevant learning and entertainment options.
Signing up for our email is easy. Complete the form below and look for the confirmation email in your inbox.

Normally we ask people to subscribe and become a member of the Senior Tech Club. However, during the Coronavirus Crisis, we are suspending our membership programs so that we can focus our efforts on helping all older adults.
But you can still help with a PayPal donation. We are NOT a non-profit organization. However we still have expenses and even a $10 donation would go a long way to keep our site operating during this unsettling time.
