 'Using Technology for Good'

Betty shared some information with us last Sunday -
Johnson County Community College offers some "Introduction to Computers" classes for beginners that are geared towards the 50+ but all adults are welcome! "Whether you have received a new iPad, want to learn more about software such as Windows 7 or Microsoft Office, or are eager to learn how to edit photos and videos," this is a fantastic place to start!
You can visit for course dates and to register, or if you have questions you can call 913-469-3891 or email

I hope you all enjoyed the evening and learned a lot! Here is the list of people's favorite apps that I put together. Thanks to all those who contributed!  Some of them are free, and some cost money.  I'm also not entirely sure what is available for android vs. apple, so you'll just have to search! Good luck, I hope you enjoy!!
