Due to the circumstances, all classes are taking place weekly via ZOOM. Below are the details about the classes being offered virtually during the Coronavirus pandemic. All in-person classes will resume in September.
Computer and Smartphone Course
The original Computer Basics and Honors Computers courses were adapted to online live lessons taught by the Mittler Senior Technology Team. Each week is spent exploring topics that are specifically relevant during the time of the Coronavirus. Past lessons have included online entertainment, shopping online, playing games online, and using FaceTime. Lessons are planned and organized by Jordan Mittler and Julia Feit, Content and Layout Advisor.

It is the responsibility of the younger generation to educate seniors about technology. The goal of Mittler Senior Technology is to cure the issue of social isolation and help senior citizens feel connected with the new world of technology. Each of our self-made classes strives to educate seniors how to communicate with friends and family in the manners we are accustomed to today, and how to use technological tools to enhance and simplify their daily lives.

I was never able to send pictures on my phone and now that I can do it, I have done it many times. I never knew what all the icons were used for and feel more comfortable with them now. I have had many teachers over my lifetime and Jordan is a natural. I am much less afraid of the computer because of the class
I learned not to be afraid of the computer…fearless I’m not! The more I learn, the more I see how much more I need to learn. I recently read in the Times, that children learn a language much easier, if a new language is taught before the age of seven. For me, using the computer is a new language which is developing, and changing rapidly. It’s hard to play “catch-up” at my age.
I enjoyed all the classes, particularly the class that covered the “Internet”. I found I moved around the computer faster. I want to thank Jordan for being so generous with his time and knowledge. He has been exemplary in providing a well organized and presented computer class.
Great Class! I now feel more comfortable using my desktop.
I learned how to take pictures, get the weather, and get the news. I learned not to be afraid of technology. Jordan was totally organized and communicated very well with the students.
The instructor was the best and very patient, making himself available to all the students at all times
I appreciate your efforts teaching technology to my wife. She’s looking forward to next semester.
Each class I learned something new!
