The FCC will host a free Senior Digital Literacy Day seminar, "How the Internet Can Benefit Older Americans." Seniors, and those who work with and/or care for seniors, are invited to attend and learn about how Broadband (high speed Internet services) can benefit older Americans. Panelists, including representatives from the FCC, communications companies and not-for-profit organizations will focus on the many ways the Internet can benefit seniors, with emphasis on its safe and secure use.
The seminar will include interactive demonstrations of electronic devices, such as cell phones, tablets, iPads, desktops and e-readers, and user-friendly computer programs that can benefit Seniors. Thomas Kamber of NYC's Older Adults Technology Services (OATS) is one of the speakers.
The seminar is free and open to the public, and will be streamed live.
