Self-help instructions on Ipad technology

The Ontario Society of Senior Citizens Organizations (OSSCO) offers a variety of computer training opportunities, including using the self-help instructions on Ipad technology. Consulting with more than 544 seniors helped OSSCO to develop this self-help instruction for both individual users as well as trainers who work with seniors. We learned that seniors want to use technology to stay connected, to read magazines or emails, for sharing photos (and ideas), to listen to music, find recipes, discount coupons and much more. We know that using today’s technology such as tablets and Ipads can help reduce the risk of social isolation, no matter what happens in our lives.

If you are a senior who is starting to use your Ipad, click Appendix I for initial set up.  These are instructions to help you set up your Ipad and get it ready to use.  Click Ipad Quick reference to help you with the tips to use the Ipad and get comfortable using it right away. It’s a quick reference sheet on key processes that you will use. If you are a trainer who wants to offer Ipad training to seniors who are members of a seniors club, an elderly persons centre or activities coordinator in a retirement home, the Ipad Introduction – Instructor Guide will provide you with information to instruct an older person using Ipad technology. The Ipad Introduction Course Content gives the trainer an overview of what is covered in the Instructor Guide.
