Providing technical and life-skills education classes and consultation services to a senior audience located in southeastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and The Islands.
Who We Are
One of the few silver linings to the COVID-19 pandemic is increased awareness of the digital divide and the impact that being technologically disconnected can have on a wide range of social determinants of health. Over the past four years, I have developed courses tailored to seniors throughout Cape Cod. I worked at Cornell University before moving to Cape Cod where I teach various classes at The Falmouth Community School, Mashpee Senior Center, Osterville Village Library, Vineyard Haven Library, Plymouth Main Library and the Newcomers Club. Additionally, I perform consulting in the area of organizing and digitizing your irreplaceable photo collection.
My classes are usually 1-2 hours long and can be held for one person, small and large groups. The benefits of senior education include decreased isolation and better mental and physical health and although we may connect the new school year with children, it is crucial to change our mindset and include senior education, which provides lifelong learning benefits such as improved cognitive functioning.
Learning is something we do throughout our entire lives. We don't simply stop learning once we finish school - we learn new things every day. The learning we do in adulthood isn't always done in a classroom, but it still counts!
Learning is an essential part of life and is something we should all seek to continue as we get older.
Learning new things becomes especially important in the senior years. It's a great way to keep the mind and body active and can play a big part in keeping seniors happy and healthy.
Seniors can build and share their own dreams using technology
