iSeniors volunteers regularly meet with an older Canberran in their home to provide ICT information and skill development over an eight week program. Program participants normally develop an IT related goal. A typical goal could be to set up and use email, learn how to Zoom family members, use social media or watch TED talks on their iPad. We hope to ‘graduate’ our participants so that they can independently access and use the technology, fostering a more socially inclusive and connected community.
