Seniors and Tech: Helping Some of our Most Loyal Navigate the Technology Terrain

Senior citizens are one of the most loyal demographics when it comes to brick and mortar library usage. Libraries are often the first place they think of when they need a helping hand with the difficulties of current technology. Meeting their instructional needs can be challenging. Join us for this webinar as we discuss how to meet the needs of our “Seniors” including: best practices for instruction, recommended resources for continued learning, focusing attention on their online privacy and security and hardware considerations.

Jackie holds a Master’s degree in Library & Information Studies with a concentration in Technology Management and a Bachelor’s Degree in Education.
