Program teaches computer skills to older generations
New York’s Pace University students teach senior citizens computer skills such as email, searching the web and more. Many of the seniors come back to the tutoring sessions multiple times before they remember how to use the skills. Most of the seniors want to use the computer to keep in touch with family and friends. The student teachers are advised to make the seniors do all of the things by themselves which will hopefully help them remember. One senior went as far as to say, “this gadget scares the living daylights out of me.”
