Emmy Monash residents participated in an iPad Masterclass last week. In conjunction with Telstra Digital Ambassadors, residents became familiar with the different functions of an iPad, based on personal interests.
Gandel philanthropy has funded the iPad Connect program at Emmy Monash and Nicole Brittain (Grant Manager-Jewish and Israel Programs, Gandel Philanthropy) who attended the masterclass was highly impressed by the interest and responsiveness of the participants.
Specialist Emmy Volunteers offered focused support to residents, whilst the Telstra Ambassadors brought 30 iPads for the participants to have hands on practice at developing skills to expand their knowledge and access apps and sites of individual interest.
Both Emmy Monash and Gandel Philanthropy believe that you are never too old to learn and embrace new technology, and the iPad masterclass certainly endorsed that view. Judy Fetter, Emmy Monash Donor Relations Manager, was delighted with the attendance and focused interest of the residents. “The direct involvement of corporate partners assists Emmy Monash to offer cutting edge programs for the seniors of our community.”
