Cyber Seniors - Love This!

This is so heartwarming.  Cyber Seniors are senior citizens who take their first steps with the internet.  They are taught by teenage mentors who go to school close to their nursing home.  This would be a great service learning project in our communities.  The group learns about Facebook, YouTube and email.  They learn that the internet is a great way to connect with their families.  The goal of Cyber Seniors is to teach teach senior citizens how to send and receive emails and talk to distant friends and relatives using Sype. 

This movement helps the older generation to learn more about technology.  It not only teaches them about it but it gives them power to expand their social and physical needs. If you want to learn more about it, head over to the Cyber Seniors Documentary page.  

I believe this is a great project- both rewarding and life changing for so many.
