“I’m here to learn how to use a tablet and Gmail,” said Dotty, a student at Google’s “Age EngAge” Gmail class for older adults at the Central Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) on Friday morning.
“I have a computer, but not one of these tablet gizmos,” she said, pointing to a blue Galaxy Nexus Android device. “This is terrific; I hope they keep doing this. Because it’s one-on-one. In other classes you get a lot of people but only one instructor who ten minutes into the class goes crazy. So far, Alex has not gone crazy.”
