Smart Seniors' initiative in Kochi aims to make senior citizens tech savvy
ResPublica Consulting and Karuna Communications have launched the Smart Seniors' initiative in Kerala.
The aim of the initiative is to educate senior citizens about using technology.
A group of 30 senior citizens were recently taught how to use smartphones.
Smartphones have become very common. However, the devices are not easy for all senior citizens to use.
The session covered the basic uses of iPhone and Android phones.
Senior citizens attended the session with enthusiasm and sought answers to questions regarding Google Search, Facebook, and WhatsApp messaging.
Organizers also advised the old people about making online payments, hiring cabs, and other basic information.
Smartphones can make the lives of retired easier as lot of things can be accessed through the phone.
The session was very useful for the senior citizens. They said they knew more about a device that is a part of everyone’s life.
