“We are very excited to offer Microsoft Office 13 and Windows 8 classes using the very latest in technology — Surface Tables and new HP desktops,” Ms. Tufariello said. “We’ve equipped our computer lab with a 50-inch smart TV monitor for ease of viewing. Some of the other new technology courses revolve around mobile devices — Droids and iPads/iPhones — all using countless apps to accelerate and enhance learning. Website creation, ebook publishing, blogging and digital photography classes are some of our other tech offerings. We have always offered basic and advanced technology courses throughout the semester, which extends through December, ” she added.
A sampling of other new classes include: astrology, pysanky egg decorating, an expanded Indian cooking series, as well as, American and French festive holiday cooking. Mary Zengo and Bonnie Sheehan, two noteworthy Wiltonians, will offer training to run the Thanksgiving 5K race; Carl Westerlund, Wilton community gardener, will discuss soil composition for organic gardens and Nirmala Clarence, a Wilton resident and public school employee, will lead Bollywood dancing.
Classes are held at Wilton public schools or in businesses in the Wilton, Ridgefield and Norwalk communities.
