Intro to Tablet Computers

Event Type: Computer Classes
Date: 9/20/2012
Start Time: 1:30 PM
End Time: 3:30 PM
Students learn about tablet computers such as the Samsung Galaxy® 10.1 or the Apple® iPad, and explore this newer technology by interacting with other members of the class. Feel free to bring your own tablet computer if you have one, but if you do not, you will still learn from the discussion and presentation. There are a variety of tablet computers on the market and we discuss the pros and cons of tablet computers compared with the traditional laptop or desktop computer models. "Apps" and using tablets as eReaders are also covered topics.
