Main Program

The first objective of the NeverTechLate project is to assist older adults with learning how to use a tablet.  Zoom video conferencing software will also be introduced.  The goal is to help older adults learn how to use technological tools, like video conferencing, to help reduce feelings of social isolation.

NeverTechLate was developed in consultation with instructional design professionals from the Department of Professional Studies in Education at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  An extensive needs assessment was performed via the collaboration with subject matter experts, as well as with retirement community residents, directors and staff.
