Welcome to the Home Page of the
Century Village Computer Club
Pembroke Pines, Florida
In January and February, the Computer Club held Workshops for Century Village Residents interested in downloading Library books to their Handheld Devices.
Click on the link below. This link will let you watch the You Tube Video of the Tablets Sessions provided by the Century Village Computer Club, the Miramar Library, and DeVry University volunteers. Even if you aren't in it, your friends are.
After the sessions, Dr. Mary Howrey, who brought the volunteer staff and students, wrote this blog for DeVry University. Read it, please.
Century Village of Pembroke Pines, located in beautiful South Florida, has a large number of social groups, clubs and organizations, offering a wide assortment of social activities and entertainment which residents may attend.
We are not one of them! We are a Teaching Club - one that gives priority to Education, specifically learning about computers and using them in the 21st century.
The majority of our residents are retired seniors, and we all know that the brain, like any other part of the body, needs exercise to stay healthy. "Use it or lose it", as the saying goes. So we study, learn and grow together, in an exciting environment and using the very latest technology available! In fact, we can proudly boast that we have 38 state-of-the-art, internet-connected workstations in our Computer Learning Center, located in the Clubhouse.
The cost? For a mere $15 per year in Club dues, a member can attend any number of classes, with no additional charges at all - ever.
The Century Village Computer Club offers a wide variety of classes aimed at virtually any and every level of user. So, we ask our fellow residents:
Are you a complete novice, barely able to even spell "computer", never mind actually use one? We have the perfect class for you, with patient and understanding teachers who will provide one-on-one help all the way.
Are you a fairly knowledgeable computer user? We have excellent, challenging classes at which you will grow and increase your skills. Or maybe you could even help teach one of them?
Are you interested in using your digital camera and manipulating your photos within a computer? We have exceptional teachers to help you harness your creativity and get the very best out of both you and your equipment.
Do you have a vision impairment, and sadly assume that using a computer is not an option for you? We have Vision-Impaired facilities that will surprise and delight you.
You can access the rest of the website by moving your cursor over the drop-down menus (in green) at the top of this page, and clicking on any link you choose.
Learn more about our Club, and how you can join us in learning more about the wonderful world of Computers. You'll be very glad you did! I promise!
Thank you for visiting our club's website.
