The actual ‘Techno Savvy Seniors’ workshop was held at Woodlupine Community Centre during the July School Holidays. The volunteers paired up with a senior and worked with them to learn basic tech skills on their laptop, tablet or smartphone. Volunteers worked off the list of simple tasks that was given to them at the ‘Briefing Session’ to help determine what the senior already knew and what they would like to know.
