Seniors Count-Nashua workshop covers high teach ways to communicate with family and friends
NASHUA – Keeping in touch with family and friends is easier when you are comfortable with tools like email, text messaging, Facebook and Skype. In the latest in its series of free workshops, Seniors Count-Nashua offers information about each of these communications tools, what they are, what each is used for and what technology they work on.
The presentation-only-format workshop will provide participants with ideas to try on their own devices when they get home.
