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.
