150     I have an iPad (or iPhone), now what?

Join us for a hands-on iPad/iPhone class that is geared toward helping to really make your device “your own,” by helping to get you comfortable with the most popular and useful apps.  The final session will help you explore additional apps you might enjoy and show you how to download them yourself.  The format of this class will be a 45 minute lecture, followed by a 30 minute “lab” for individual help. Topics to be covered are:

1- The basics: the hardware, keyboarding, Apple-id, icons used throughout the applicationsPicture of iPad

2- Signing onto Wi-fi to communicate with others:  email, iMessages, Facetime

3- Search - browsing and accessing information

4- Making it personal: downloading apps, contacts, calendar, maps

5- It’s all you need:  Exploring apps and entertainment (iTunes, Netflix, Games, Facebook)

This class has a requirement for MANDATORY ATTENDANCE at the first session.  You will be dropped from the class roll if you do not attend the first class session.

152 Genealogy and the Computer

This class will seek to merge the tools of basic genealogical research with the greatest source of genealogical information ever assembled, the Internet.  Each session will concentrate on matching specific areas of building a “family tree” to available resources on the Internet so that the students can take full advantage of the computer to find their ancestors.Picture of Tree

Please note that this is not a “hands-on” computer class, but a lecture class from which students can take away information and use on their home (or other) computer.

Robert Marlowe, an Oak Ridger, has been a teacher and an administrator with the Anderson County School System.  Now retired, Bob has been and continues to be involved in genealogy.  He has taught this subject at ORICL in the past, but now computers and the internet can make genealogy searching easier and quicker.
