The purpose of this project is to assist older adults with technological needs. We meet weekly with older adults to present them with different topics about technology applications they are interested in or need help navigating. While the presentations are created for the purpose of educating on topics the older adults are interested in, the class time is also spent trouble shooting and fixing tech issues the participants are having with their devices. I am responsible for helping the students decide on what topics to present, answering student questions, organizing the classroom for in person teaching, and providing tech support to the older adults.
