When Alex asked me to make a TAFE card for him I had to look twice at his date of birth, 1924.
Yes he was 94 years old and about to learn how to use a tablet.
Alex is one of 8 students over the age of 50, who have enrolled in a free computer course at TAFE NSW Belmont.
Their teacher, Jody Schofield, has taught the students how to navigate around the tablet, download apps, and search the internet. She said the students have really enjoyed learning new skills.
A few things that amazed 94 year old Alex was being able to see his house from space, working out how long a trip will take from one place to another in a matter of minutes and how fun some of the games were.
All students are loving their course and this just goes to show that you’re never too old to learn new tricks!!
