The New Frontier-Training Older Adults for the Latest Gadgets

Most American communities are aging, and libraries are in a position to identify opportunities to meet the needs of older adults in their communities. Your library can help anticipate the growing technological needs of mature audiences, so they can better understand the digital landscape.

In this 60-minutes webinar scheduled for Tuesday, July 16, 2019, you’ll learn how you can increase opportunities for older adults in your community to learn the latest gadgets, obtain government resources and services, develop personal awareness, and actively participate with accessible gaming equipment. Join, Allan M. Kleinman, Fatima Perkins, Lyle Ishida, and Taina Evans  to discover how your library will remain a vital point for seniors who wish to engage more deeply with the world around them.

After participating in this webinar, you will:

  • Have at least two strategies to tap into community resources to meet the interest and needs of older adults
  • Be able to describe the best and most effective practices to develop services and programs for a mature population
