Senior citizens go high-tech
Senior citizens were treated to technology training at the Elsie Stuhr Senior Center on Monday, Oct. 23.
The free smartphone and device workshop for local seniors was hosted by AT&T and is a part of a national digital literacy effort called Digital You, aimed at helping to bridge the technology skills gap and empower older adults to use mobile technology. Attendees at the event gained skills and confidence to use mobile technology via the hands-on smartphone training workshop.
The effort aims to help older adults learn how to make the most of smartphones, such as sending email, making video calls, taking and sharing photos, downloading apps, as well as providing tips for connecting safely online, protecting devices and discover how broadband and mobile technology can help improve their lives.
The device workshop at the Elsie Stuhr Senior Center is one in a series of Digital You seminars taking place around the country and AT&T is offering additional training sessions in the area.
