The world of technology is open to all to explore at Cummings and staying connected has never been easier. Whether keeping in touch with a grandchild living out of town or indulging in online shopping. Providing our members with opportunities to expand their learning through technology is a priority.
Take the tech challenge
Join our community of online learners from the comfort of home. Whether because of mobility issues, caregiving responsibilities, winters down south or simply bad weather, Virtual Learning keeps members connected. Over 100 lectures are available from the Video Library covering a wide range of stimulating topics. Join the Book Club and participate in self-directed peer to peer discussions. “Joining our Virtual Learning community is an added bonus for our members,” says Erica Botner, Program Manager. “Staying connected and learning something new is another way to challenge your brain.”
The Bloom Family Tech Lounge is equipped with personal computers, printers, tablets, a smart TV, Wi-Fi and seating allowing participants to learn and upgrade their computer skills while staying connected. A corps of dedicated volunteers work in a drop-in format, with participants often bringing in their own devices. Learning is one-on-one or through workshops focusing on computer basics through to acquiring essential tips and tricks to master any device.
The Cummings Centre’s mission is to empower and enhance the quality of life of adults age 50 and over by providing dynamic and innovative programs, social services, and volunteer opportunities in a vibrant, respectful, inclusive and compassionate environment. Building on its Jewish heritage, Cummings embraces people from all ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.
