BFS webinar: Helping seniors learn

March 6, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Event Navigation

Seniors love learning but they need more than encouragement to learn. With the retirement age rising, it’s more important than ever to make sure that seniors have the right skills to operate in modern society. The success of some seniors in terms of grappling with technology proves that the young do not have a monopoly on digital literacy.

In this webinar, our facilitator Vivian Evans shares with us some strategies that work when teaching seniors such as emphasis, real life contexts, positive reinforcement, cues and how to combat resistance to technology.
