It's always best to start at the beginning...

 

SeniorNet takes a unique approach to teaching you the basics.

After a few lessons on the proper use of the mouse and keyboard, you will learn to improve your skills with a number of "Fun Exercises". This lesson can also be a refresher for some members. You will also learn the basics of the new Windows 10 Start menu!

 

Objectives of Computer Fundamentals

This course will teach you how to:

  • Turn on a computer... Easy-to-follow instructions for logging on to your computer.
  • Use a computer keyboard... Learn how your keyboard is divided and how different keys function.
  • Use the mouse... Learn basic mouse operations. Find out about the 'arrow' or 'mouse pointer' and learn about Left-click, right-click and double-click.
  • Cut, copy and paste text from one place to another.
  • Transfer files from a CD or flash drive to your computer.
  • Launch a program from Windows 10 Start Menu.

Netherlands (6/27/2017) PDF Email

 

Netherlands  

 

Recently I received an email from the Netherlands saying..."Maybe you don't know this, but 20 years ago, our SeniorWeb in The Netherlands was founded after your example ! So it would be great to compare."...after research, we found the following...

 

SeniorWeb Netherlands is a non-profit association which runs the most popular community platform for seniors in the Netherlands. Its mission is to familiarize those generations with computers and the Internet who have not had the chance to grow up with them. An important premise is that this should be done for and by seniors. SeniorWeb, starting in 1997, has developed a well-functioning network of highly motivated and enthusiastic volunteers. SeniorWeb has a rich experience with elderly people, enabling it to develop new products and services for this target group.

We welcomed SeniorWeb's visit with open arms. Willows SeniorNet Center in San Jose, CA hosted the visit with Ingrid Kock, Manager PCHulp en Leercentra, SeniorWeb. This meeting was extremely beneficial for all of us. Both made presentations, lots of idea - sharing and benchmarking of best practices.

Thanks to our founder Mary Furlong for her vision, to the Willows SeniorNet Team for their leadership and - a "welcome back" to SeniorWeb for future visits to other SeniorNet Centers in the United States.

".... Also, my mother's provider has just set up a portal and I now have access. I was able to check her medications (and other records as well). She's 95, does not have a computer, and lives some distance away. It's great to have this kind of tool!...." Pat M.

 

".... I like using the patient portal because I can get so much information regarding my test and my appointment list.  I also read the doctor's summary of my visits and check to see that my medications are listed correctly and that they are current.  I also receive Emails from the doctors/nurses and can communicate with them also.  I also like seeing the news about the Clinic when I open the home page..."
