Technology Workshop - Google Searches, Google Maps and Google Earth

This month we will be looking at using Google's search, maps and Earth. Ever wanted to be able to search Google more effectively? Or to use Google Maps when you're lost? Or to discover the wonders of Google Earth? Then this is the session for you! 

We will chat about using search engines effectively, and the types of words or phrases to use that will most likely result in a positive search. There are a number of different maps apps, but we will show you how to approach using them in situations where you are lost or need to navigate whilst driving. Finally, we will look at Google Earth and what different information we can find when using this fascinating tool.

Come along with friends or family and have a cuppa whilst delving into the delights that Google has to offer us these days!

Technology Workshop - Storage and Back-ups

This workshop will cover all of the different ways to store data from your devices, as well as how to do back-ups. This is an important topic - you never know when you might need to access your back-ups, and it can be confusing to decide which storage solution best meets your individual needs. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, so bring along your own devices and we can tailor the information we give to fit your situation. All are welcome, including friends and relatives. Morning tea will be provided.
