Sacramento’s Hart Senior Center offers tech classes for older adults

A new series of TechConnections computer literacy classes designed specifically for older adults has gotten underway at Sacramento’s Hart Senior Center, but registration remains open for many of the classes being offered, said Hart spokeswoman Nela Lee.

The schedule includes sessions on computer basics but goes far beyond that, with classes on how to use the iPad and Internet safety for older adults as well as one-on-one instruction sessions.

While some of the TechConnections offerings are free, others have fees ranging up to $40 for the entire six-week semester. Most classes last 90 minutes.

The first TechConnections semester is housed only at the Hart location, but future semesters are planned for other senior centers in Sacramento.

Ethel M. Hart Senior Center is located at 915 27th St. in Sacramento. For more information on TechConnections, call the center at (916) 808-5462.
