Fox Chapel Area Adult Education adds tech lessons to help eliminate digital clutter

Fox Chapel Area Adult Education has a perfect class this spring for tech newbies racking up thousands of emails or people who yearn to take better photos with an iPhone.

Private lessons for Apple devices, taught by Plum resident Emily McNeil, are part of the spring offerings that launched last month.

“It’s important because the way technology changes, I think it’s hard to keep up,” McNeil said.

“Even for younger people, there are always new updates and features that we have to learn to understand, like we now have three lenses on a phone camera. Many of us have this wonderful piece of technology on the table, but we don’t fully know how to use it.”

Founded in 1962, FCAAE is an extension program of the Fox Chapel Area School District that offers low-cost adult enrichment classes. One-night and multi-week classes are offered. Participants do not need to be residents of the Fox Chapel area communities.

The program is supported by district facilities, but operates solely through student enrollment.

Classes start at $20 and include returning favorites like swimming, photography, gardening and yoga.

The spring semester runs through mid-May.

Aimed at lifelong learners, the mission is to offer courses that improve lives, said Director Sue Goodwin.
