Large Meeting Room


Friday, Sept 10, 2021, 1:15→3:15 pm

Topic: Learning Resources for Seniors
Presenter: Hewie Poplock


No matter our age, there is still a lot to learn. Hewie’s presentation covers many websites where we can add to our knowledge – not always about technology. Lifelong learning is the process of keeping your mind and body engaged, at any age, by actively pursuing knowledge and experience. The pursuit of knowledge through lifelong learning – whether it’s learning how to dance, speak a foreign language, write a newsletter, improve your golf swing, or repair your car – has wonderful benefits for adults 50-plus.

Our General Meetings are usually held on the second Friday of each month except for the July and August vacation period. They are usually held at the Johnson County Central Resource Library except for the May Annual Meeting/Lunch which is usually held at Lakeview Village.

Presentation Follow-up from Judy: – I click on the AARP Click Now button (I’m a member).

PDF of the presentation is attached. 

I have also attached the PDF of my FB security presentation in case you can use some of the info for your class. I ended up with a gazillion resources and have a couple of more that I am going to use to update the presentation. I am enjoying the Edge Collections feature to keep track of websites I find to use at meetings, presentations, etc. I created one for the YouTube links I like–works better for me than Favorites.

I sent the Goodreads question to Steve Costello and have attached his presentation. There is a community page that might be considered some type of social media. He has the distinction of belonging to 4 groups in Florida, president of some of them, and having the groups disband. 

Goodreads….Community Page

This page has links to Groups, Discussions, Quotes, Ask the Author, Trivia, Quizzes, Creative Writing, People, and Events.

I don’t know much about these links, but some might be interested.
