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.
