Session Title

Senior Tech: The Next Generation: Bringing Tech Learning to Seniors Where They Live

Presenter Information

Brian Lind, Rochester Public Library

Description

Older community members are not always able to attend technology classes at the public library, so we partnered with our local university to put together a mobile class experience (called "Generation Tech"). Library staff and students made connections with senior living centers, asked what the needs were, created promotional materials, designed classes for the needs of the institutions, and delivered them on site. Hear about the triumphs and challenges of this program.
