ATC Book

This coming Thursday, 11 Apr, there will be the launch of the ATC on Parade Book. This is happening at 7 pm at Bishan Library.

This book is about Artist Trading Cards, and is compiled by the ATC interest group which had been meeting at Bishan Library for about 10 years. It is a book of inspiration for anyone who would like to try creating and a book of memories from this group which has stopped meeting since Dec last year.

Won’t you come and join us?

UPDATE: The Book has been successfully launched and you can get your free copy here.

Silver Infocom Talks

Over this weekend, Moses was given the chance to share with seniors about making their own interactive digital books and also a basic introduction to coding through Swift Playground.

It’s always lots of fun when the audience could participate actively, just like any other learning.

Accessibility

There has been quite a few opportunities to share about the accessibility features which are come in-built in iOS devices and there are many useful functions for seniors.

Thank you Ageless Online for the mention.

In the past month, we had two of such engagements. If you would like to know more, do reach out to us at pauseability@gmail.com.

Wonderful assistance from these medical students at the Eye Care event.

Joy of Learning

Recently, I was able to conduct a one-day Joy of Learning workshop with preschool teachers, in collaboration with The Learning Caravan. It was conducted in Mandarin.

We enjoyed learning together as we experientially explored TIM-BUG-Tool alongside Multiple Intelligences and the Reggio Emilia’s Approach, ending the day with Reflective Practice.

The best moment is seeing the delight on the faces of the participants and the hope is that they bring back this same joy of learning with them into their interactions with their young ones. This is what learning and teaching creatively about.

Silver Digital Creators

As part of the Silver IT Roadshow this weekend at Toa Payoh HDB Hub, Moses will be sharing at a session for each of the day.

There will also be a booth at which anyone above 50 years old can have a preview of the Silver Digital Creators course that is starting in September.

It Happened – A Place in Our Hearts

On Saturday, 21 July, a community event planned by Moses took place: A Place in Our Hearts – Toa Payoh. Teams spent the morning exploring Toa Payoh and making an ebook with the iPads provided.

In this morning of smiles and much kindness, generous helping, and meaningful time spent together, a total of 14 ebooks were made. These are available at https://aplaceinourhearts.weebly.com/the-books.html for viewing.

This was Moses’ personal project, and he is grateful to get the support of volunteers and partners and the HDB’s Friendly Faces Lively Places fund to be able to bring the joy of creating with technology to more people and encouraging the spending time to pause and explore possibilities.
