Last week, ETAG was featured on an informative television show called Aging In Peel, put together by our good friends over at Peel Senior Link.
Chris Bint and Phil Shahinian joined host Ray Applebaum to explore what ETAG does to support technology use for adults 55+ and why it is important.
We also discussed ETAG’s helpful Technology Enabled Living program, that takes a mobile computer lab with WIFI Internet to retirement communities and long term care centres. It’s an incredibly accessible initiative that ETAG is happy to work on with Peel Senior Link, with support from the New Horizons for Seniors Program 🙂
In case you missed it, a link to the interview is available on the Rogers TV website.

Tablets, Apps, and Mobile Technologies: what to know and how it works
Tablet computers, like the Microsoft Surface, the Apple iPad, Android, and the BlackBerry Playbook, are changing the way we interact with technology, the Internet, and the people in our communities. There are many things to consider when choosing a tablet that’s right for you; how much do they cost? What are the major differences between them? What functionality is important? What “Apps” are available? How do you maintain them so they last? Why should you get a tablet in the first place? ETAG’s workshop is designed for everyone and will explore these questions and provide some tips and tricks to being a savvy tablet user. The workshop is also hands-on, so participants get to try all the tablets and ask our technology tutors any personal technology questions they have.
