Breaking Digital Barriers to Present an Online Seminar

Michigan Tech’s Breaking Digital Barriers Group to present an Online Seminar for People Who Help Older Adults Use Technology.

The one-week online seminar, Digital Literacy and the Older Adults, is for anybody who:

  • helps older adults use technology,
  • wants to help people in their community cope with the rapid change in technology that has become part of our everyday life, and
  • or anyone who has ever tried to debug their parents’ computer problems over the phone.

The seminar will run Nov. 18 to 22, with a time commitment of 1-2 hours a day.

The seminar will take place online.  Registration is at www.mtu.edu/bdbmooc.  

The Breaking Digital Barriers group is composed of faculty and graduate students in the computer science, humanities, and social sciences departments of Michigan Tech. They developed a community outreach program that helps older adults acquire the skills needed to experience the benefits of technology.
