SeniorNet is a non-profit organisation for people over 55 who want to improve their Information Technology (IT) and Internet skills.  Computers, tablets, smartphones, and other modern technologies can be puzzling and daunting for the older generation, but the ability to use the Internet is now just about essential. Knowledge and confidence with using these technologies can bring many benefits as we get older.  Our two main aims are:

  • To enable older people to become IT literate in a friendly and enjoyable way.
  • To enable older people to interact with the world and enhance their lives through the Internet

We aim to showcase leading edge technology in simple to understand terms.

Our monthly members forums are at Regency Park on the second Wednesday of each month at 2 pm, with interesting talks followed by afternoon tea.  Visitors are welcome.


Who are we?

Your tutors are just ordinary people with some technology experience who volunteer to work alongside you to help you learn at your pace.

YouTube entertainment clip show.
Food and non-alcoholic drink free of charge.

Bring the web address of your favourite YouTube clip, up to 5 minutes.
Because we will be providing the food and drink, we will ask for a response closer to the time, so that we can ascertain numbers.

These drop-in help sessions are held every Monday morning at the Rotorua Public Library from 9 am to noon.
