A Sip & Swipe Cafe is an opportunity for adults to get free self-paced lessons on how to use a tablet or smartphone. Cafes offer an easy, free, and safe way to learn how to use a tablet. Every Wednesday in July, we’re hosting Sip & Swipe Cafes here at the William Way Community Center. We invite you to join us and try out this free digital literacy curriculum from Generations Online.

Bring your own smartphone or tablet or learn on one of ours! We’ll have coffee and other beverages available.

The digital literacy lessons are comprised of guided tutorials that cover content including:

  • The basics- Tapping a touchscreen, enlarging a page and shrinking, scrolling up and down, where buttons are located, how to get keyboard to appear and disappear.
  • Internet Safety and Searching
  • Communicating – texting, video-calling, email by either getting a Gmail account (or if you have an email account- how to access on tablet)
  • More-How to use YouTube, the camera, attaching photo to email, apps (what are they, how to get and how to delete)

We can also help you to apply to get a free tablet of your own!

You can call us at 215-720-9415 if you or someone you know if interested in attending. Please do register in advance to ensure that we have enough tablets for all participants.
