Courses for seniors developed by Philip Mallon.

Developing LATS blog


Welcome to the LATS blogging site. LATS stands for Learning About Technology to Improvement Society so that we are all better off – better health, awareness, knowledge, opportunities etc My special interest is supporting those who are disadvantaged such as people with disabilities and helping them use technology to cope. I am also interested in helping seniors to understand how technology can assist them to live more independently.  This LATS site is used by seniors from u3a to debate and explore technologies in u3a sessions facilitated by me. In 2014 I am co-facilitating a special interest group, CARTS (Cars Automobiles Railways Trains and Ships) so that seniors at u3a in Greater Western Sydney can enjoy exploring transport technologies in their world. I am also developing courses for Parramatta Computer Pals for 2015 to explore the Internet of Things.
