The Digital Resources Committee is presenting a technology for seniors training in August. Below are the details and a link to register.
Digital Resources Committee Presents “Technology Training with Seniors” August 6, 2019 10 – noon; Community Library of Castle Shannon
One of the most important and most needed services a library can provide is in technology training and accessing online resources. Assisting seniors with technology presents its own unique set of challenges and rewards. Heather Auman, Technical Services Librarian, will share from her five years’ experience with conducting computer classes and one-on-one tech tutoring with senior citizens. This staff training will consist of a presentation sharing stories, strategies, successes, and even failures, which we all can learn from to better connect this population with technology that is well suited to their needs. To try some of these skills out, there will be a small group activity where we can role play to practice what we’ve learned. We will also share ideas on how to market such services and create partnerships with the community for these initiatives at our local libraries. 2 Continuing Education hours will be offered.
