The NeverTechLate concept started with three key observations:
The knowledge of technology has become crucial to get access to services and, more importantly, to people.
Longevity is a challenge but also an opportunity; neuroplasticity research has confirmed that our brains can keep on learning.
The ability to communicate with loved ones is the best (and more affordable) way to sustain optimal health.
In collaboration with experts in Instructional Design and Technology education, NeverTechLate has developed an 8-week, 1-hour session curriculum during which the older adult will first be introduced to the world (and words) of technology as well as how to use a tablet. The participants are then introduced to a video conferencing tool which will allow them to interact with old and new friends and/or family members.
