Tech Help For Seniors…4 Tips to Help
4 Tips to Help Seniors Adjust to a new tech purchase
Older adults are one of the fastest growing segments of the online community. Do you know a senior (or are you one yourself) who’s interested in computers/tablets/smartphones but doesn’t know where to start? Here are some of the best resources:
- Look for beginner computer classes at your local library, senior center, college/university or computer store.
- Check out (or ask someone to look up) www.seniornet.org. For a membership fee, this non-profit offers online courses and instructor-led workshops at learning centers in the U.S. and other countries.
- Search for “computers” at www.aarp.org for articles on all tech topics geared for seniors.
- Hire a kid. Ask a younger friend or relative to teach you what you want to know. They’ve grown up with this stuff!
