Recently, the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts was delighted to present a grant of $10,000 to the Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association (ASCCA) to contribute towards the cost of preparing tutorials and training materials which are constantly being updated and refined to help bring computer training to all seniors.

Located on the Lower Ground floor of the SMSA building, ASCCA (Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association) is the national peak body for seniors and technology, specialising in teaching computing to seniors.
ASCCA supports and encourages seniors to take advantage of modern information technology, to become computer literate at their own pace, in a friendly non-threatening environment – and to have fun whilst doing so.
And, of course, in the 21st century, IT includes not just computers, but also mobile phones, webcams, iPads and many other emerging technologies.
ASCCA’s courses are fun, accessible and easy, covering topics like how to use the internet, how to email, iPads and Androids, how to get the most out of Microsoft Word, and more.
