Digital Literacy Events are being offered to Island seniors

The Office of Seniors is partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters to hold a series of Tech N Talk digital literacy events for seniors (65 years or older). The next Tech N Talk will be held April 22 at 10 a.m. at the Charlottetown Library Learning Centre. 

Each senior attending will be partnered with a youth volunteer for technology support and will get help using email, social media, texting, FaceTime and/or other software or application programs on their own technological or mobile devices.

“Digital Literacy is an important skill that allows us to stay connected. Today’s technology can be overwhelming and by providing events like Tech N Talk we can help to instill confidence among seniors that will help to foster inclusion and reduce feelings of isolation.” 

- Social Development and Seniors Minister Barb Ramsay
