Digital literacy and older Adults Webinar Archive

Thanks to everyone who attended the webinar last week. I wanted to share the notes, video archive, PowerPoint and a hand out, Connecting Rural Older Americans with Technology: Lessons from Senior Planet

In this webinar, participants will be introduced to OATS & Senior Planet programs, methodology, and the technologies best suited for digital literacy instruction among older learners. Additional topics will cover the impacts of ageism and technology acceptance among older adults, creating social learning environments poised for successful tech adoption, and the implications for deploying digital literacy training in myriad settings.  Finally, participants will be presented with opportunities to discuss replications of OATS programs in their respective catchment areas.

And a big thanks to the presenter:
