Introducing The Tablets
What Grandma's Gang wanted most was tablets … so that is what Channel@Work delivered. In total, 14 donors provided more than 40 Windows 8 tablets for the house. Several of the residents have limited or no opportunity to leave the campus. Tablets bring the outside world to them, and improve the quality of their lives. The technology provides educational games, drawing, movies, access to information and more.
Staff was scheduled to receive training on the use of the tablets first, but some of the residents were so eager to get started that plans changed right on the spot! Personal demonstrations were given, and activities began immediately.
