PECC conducted the 1st session of the free Internet Savvy Program for our senior folks last Friday (8 Jan 2010) and 36 participants attended. The most senior was a 76 year old member. This only proves that senior citizens are not interested in technology like the internet is not true. Given an opportunity, they will be more than willing to make an effort to come and learn. 80% of them came without an email and when they left 1.5 hours later, everyone went back with one.
We are also grateful that we have many volunteers on hand to assist. Our PECC members never failed to come forward when there is a need to educate the community. This is the first of the 12 sessions program designed specially for the senior folks to ensure that they are not being left behind in this internet age.
