With Christmas just around the corner we thought it would be an idea to try and raise awareness of how computers can bring families together this Christmas with our free 'Skype-in' session.
Everyone is welcome, you can bring your own laptop or use one of ours, we will show you how to set up your account and get started.
You can even bring along a skype address of your family member or friend, tell them when you will be contacting them and we will help you do the rest.
By using Skype it is really easy to not only be able to get in touch with far away families and friends but be able to actually see them too, it is just like they are there, in the room with you again. Ideal for keeping in touch, seeing just how big little Tommy is now (.....where did he get that beard from? :)), and getting to know members of the family again that you haven't seen in years!
The beauty of Skype is that you can invite more than one person at a time into the conversation so if you get yourselves organised enough, it is an ideal way for all the members of a family to chat together, catch up on news and generally feel like you are a family again. It is also a great way for a 'night in' with friends when you perhaps can't get out and about as much as you used to.
Can't make the skype-in? worry not, come along to our computer workshops, 4-6pm on any term-time Thursday and we will be happy to show you then.
