AGE Computer Lab, a non -profit learning center, is a program of AGE, and is devoted to making computers fun and easy for people over 50. The following galleries are examples of students' works currently enrolled in our various programs.
Since 1997, our mission has been to connect the wisdom of seniors with the wonders of the net and technology. We provide, at minimal cost, computer literacy to any adult with an interest in learning. Our state of the art lab, dedicated instructors, helpful coaches, and materials for home reference set us apart from other computer learning centers. Classes are organized by skill levels and subjects, and are geared to the interests of seniors. Learning is fun when it is paced and considerate of the needs of seniors. Unlike college classes, we have coaches ready to help - as many as one for every two students.
Roberta Przybylski retired from the public sector, and never thought she’d teach older adults, but after working as an educator, a technical writer and teaching herself how to use the computer, it seemed like a natural fit. She began volunteering at Austin Computer Learning Center, a non-profit and part of the AGE where for the last 12 years she’s taught hundreds of adults how to use their computer. She began teaching multimedia applications to digitize the shoebox of treasures or showcase photos for competition at University of Texas for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute and the Austin Computer Learning Center and has never looked back. In 2011, Roberta won the SXSW Dewey Winburne for her community service in teaching with technology and the effects are lasting throughout the community. Currently she is the Director of the Computer Center.
Roberta is married is a fellow pro-hobbyist photographer, Dan . Currently they have 5 grandchildren who are very photogenic.
