Tech Week 2017

Aug25Headline.pngBY: LAUREN COSTELLO

As Oak Crest continues to grow, so does technology. More and more residents are moving into the community with laptops, computers, iPads, kindles; you name it, they have it. So, we decided why not dedicate an entire week to technology. Even if you don’t own a computer or electronic device, we have so much great information that might just grab your attention.

I would like to thank Barbara Zorn for helping me plan this week and coming up with our show ideas!

Below is a schedule of topics that will discussed throughout the week.

Monday, August 28th: The Future of Erickson with Hans Keller
You might remember Hans Keller who acts as the Vice President of Corporate IT, when Oak Crest Connect occurred a few years ago. He was such an asset with that process that we wanted to bring him back to talk about what’s in store for the future of the company, as well as Oak Crest. He speaks on the connect process, how to set up safe passwords, ensuring your computers are setup properly to ensure no viruses attack your computer, and many other topics.

Tuesday, August 29th: Social Media Discussion with Jeff Getek
I sit down with Jeff on Tuesday to talk about the Oak Crest Facebook page, the Twitter handle, and some other great online sites that play a huge role when it comes to social media. We’ll show you how to access the Facebook page and how your family can stay up to date on the latest information happening in the community.

Wednesday, August 30th: Teach Terms of 2017
Barbara joins me on set as we discuss some common terms used around the community that some people may not be too familiar with. We want to really break down some of the difficult language and make it much simpler for residents to understand. We also hit on some main points about how useful the Oak Crest Facebook page is, how to use the Erickson Resident website, and how to access our on demand website,

Thursday, August 31st: An Inside Look at the iPad and Computer Users Group
I think this is definitely one of the most informative shows of the week. I talk with Brooks Hubbert, Barbara Zorn, and Scott Phillips about multiple questions that are asked in each of their classes. We cover everything from what internet browser is the best, to creating passwords, to what we can expect down the road from both groups…and let me tell you, there are some awesome things on the horizon!

Friday, September 1st: Tech Week Call In Show (410) 663-3013
That’s right, a call in show! We wanted to end the week by taking your questions or comments that may have popped into your head throughout the week. I can’t promise we will have all the answers, but we will definitely try our best to answer them or direct them to the right person.

So as you can see, it’s definitely a packed week! Make sure you watch each day, and call in with your questions on Friday–we would love to hear from you!

Remember, each show will be available the following day at
