Skype for Senior Citizens
 
As part of GOW13, Third Age University students attended a Skype for Senior Citizens seminar. Retirees who have already completed the Tvoy Kurs training and received their Digital Literacy Certificates, continue their digital journey under the guidance of the University’s Resource Center team, not only getting more and more interested in opportunities, provided by modern technologies, but also taking more and more initiative in trying to get the hang of them.

As soon as they learned to use e-mail, they started exchanging messages with their friends and families. But now many of them actually want to see their children and grandchildren, especially if they live far away, so it is no wonder than the seminar about using Skype proved to be very popular. The elderly users got detailed instructions on how to install Skype on their computers, how to register and start using the application, and then tried to install the program and set up the video connection themselves. Their feedback after the session was very positive: the third age learners expressed much warm gratitude to their trainer and the seminar’s facilitators.
