Young teaching the older about tablets, mobile devices

By

Young primary, secondary and tertiary students will teach older people how to use tablet technologies and mobile devices in a new program launched by the City of Stonnington in Melbourne.

The program, to be conducted by Stonnington Libraries, will deliver hands-on courses that enable older community members to engage with tablet technology with the assistance of primary, secondary or tertiary students undertaking a community service placement.

The students will deliver hands-on courses that enable older community members to engage with tablet technology.

Dubbed the Hands-On Technology sessions, students will assist community members in 45 minute sessions, either within or after school hours, depending on their school’s community service requirements and will share their digital literacy skills. The sessions will be coordinated by Stonnington Libraries and library staff will sit in on and oversee the sessions.

{loadpositon peter}City of Stonnington Mayor, Cr Melina Sehr said “What a great opportunity for students to be connected with older members of the community in such a meaningful way. The program stemmed from an idea to reach out to schools in order to expand our Get Connected/Hands-On Technology program.”

“We had immediate interest from local schools and we are now in discussions with students who want to participate.

“This is a great learning program for our community as students are matched with community members who have asked for help with the use of mobile devices (namely iPads) and the sessions are overseen by our library staff.”
