Oklahoma City center offers computer classes, free access to public
Intergenerational Computer Center offers free classes to public.
For our clientele, access to technology is a huge thing. That's become one of the very basic things you need to know to do well in school and to have a job.”
Executive director of Positive Tomorrows
The center provides free access to computers, Internet connectivity and classes for children, adults and seniors.
The classes range from beginning computer skills to computer-related interests such as Pinterest and Facebook, Photoshop and even Garageband.
The center has more than 100 computer terminals with PCs and MacBooks available. Five terminals are set up especially for small children with special age-appropriate programs and even tiny mice.
The public is invited to visit on a walk-in basis during the center's business hours or to attend the many classes available.
The center even has a mobile lab that travels to various locations, including 10 senior centers, where people may not have transportation or access to computers and Internet.
“In many cases, the seniors can't get out and don't have access so they are socially a little bit cut off,” said Veronica McGowan, the director of the center. “Sometimes that's the only time they have access to email or Facebook to check on grandkids, and things like that.”
The Intergenerational Computer Center is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. For more information, go online to www.okcu.edu/icc/ or call 208-6230.
