“Cyber-Seniors” Intergenerational Tech Skill Learning Program
CARP Halton Chapter are very pleased to announce our next virtual meeting using the ZOOM platform. This will be held in the afternoon on Thursday October 22nd from 2.00pm to 3.00pm. You will find details on how to join the meeting below.
For this meeting our guest speaker will be Nancy Siciliana from Cyber-Seniors, The Seniors’ Computer Lab Project, and SparkNiagara. Nancy will provide an insight into Cyber-Seniors and the intergenerational tech skill learning program they have available.
Nancy will explain the Cyber-Seniors program and invite CARP members to share and use the Cyber-Seniors program to develop not just basic tech skills to help them cope with COVID19, but also to reach out to organizations that support, work with, and/or advocate for seniors. Since COVID19 precautions have gone into effect, Cyber-Seniors has made their tech training resources available for free to all individuals and organizations during this pandemic, and tech training now takes place on a virtual platform in order to keep everyone safe and allow seniors everywhere to participate in the learning process.
Our Virtual tech training has allowed Cyber-Seniors to grow into an international organization, providing seniors with tech skills which became vital during the pandemic lockdown and continue to provide excellent coping abilities for seniors. Cyber-Seniors’ regular programming is also expanding to include more specific and focused tech skill training, expanded webinar training and online activities, and more.
The following is quoted from the Cyber Seniors” website:
“Cyber Seniors’ mission is to bridge the digital divide and connect generations through technology. It does so through the development and dissemination of resources that enable community organizations to provide tech-training for senior citizens using an intergenerational, youth volunteer model. Youth are provided with lessons and learning activities to train them to act as digital mentors, and senior citizens gain access to effective technology training and intergenerational communities that keep them socially connected and engaged”.
