You may recall the movie Cyber-Seniors (see the trailer here: http://bit.ly/1oz4dFX), a documentary about residents of a Toronto retirement community learning to use computers for the first time.
The film captures the challenges, successes, and humor that seniors and teenage mentors experience as the teens teach computer basics and the seniors discover YouTube, Facebook, and Skype. It also illustrates how such mentoring programs have the power to minimize digital and generational gulfs.
Saffron Cassaday, the filmmaker, had hoped to find ways to continue introducing seniors to the freedom and joys of technology. And she did.
The CyberSeniors site features resources and how-to guides (http://bit.ly/2hdhgAj) for starting a program in your community. It also offers a membership option that provides greater resources like a mentor training program, resources for educators to include in their curriculum, and a planning guide on hosting outreach events.
