Free Download: Real Seniors Using iPads: Over 100 Fun, Easy Ways to Learn Connect Communicate
This is a very important book. My experience has been that many older citizens are afraid of new technology: afraid that they cannot learn it; afraid that they will somehow “break” the computer, or the cell phone, or the iPad. This book will help to dispel those fears.
Real Seniors Using iPads: Over 100 Fun, Easy Ways to Learn Connect Communicate shows that it is fun, no big deal to learn, easy peasy. It is informative, useful, and by modeling elder citizens, some over one-hundred-years-old, it gives readers a go-by to give it a go. One of my favorites is the woman who took a bathtub tray, put it across the arms of her treadmill, and used it to hold her iPad. Brilliant! I'm implementing that ASAP.
Included are lists of apps, such as Skymap, which shows the constellations, Watch ABC, apps for movie streaming, card games, Kindle (yes, you can download your Kindle books to the iPad) and many, many more.
This book would be a fantastic gift to an elder! I learned a ton of information, and I was already quite savvy.
Methinks Apple should be giving this book a glance, because that’s all it takes to see just how informative and useful this book is.
