Do you know how to "Google" something, setup your email or keep track of appointments using an online calendar? If you'd like to become more proficient with these skills and many more computer, tablet or smartphone tools, then the Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center of Syracuse wants to help.

The JCC of Syracuse will hold a "Digital Basics" computer class on Sunday, Dec. 5 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the center on 5655 Thompson Rd., DeWitt. The class will focus on using Google's free software as an introduction to the digital world and teach simple tricks and workflows to help save time and frustration. The cost is $25 and registration is required by calling the JCC at 315-445-2360.

A limited number of laptop computers will be available to borrow, however attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptops to the class. Additional "Digital Basics" classes will be offered in the future to help adults and seniors of any age become more proficient and confident in their use of technology. Future classes will focus on different aspects of your digital lifeā€”from Web browsing, email and contacts to calendars and saving files in the "cloud." The "Digital Basics" instructor is Alec Erlebacher, founder and owner of the local technology and media company Smart Alec Support.

Look for future announcements and information about upcoming classes posted on the JCC website. For more information and suggestions on classes and content, contact Cindy at 315-445-2040, ext. 104, or
