Older adults who lack technology skills may become increasingly socially isolated, especially during the pandemic. The objective for these older adults is to feel confident, have renewed independence, and age successfully. Developing new learning opportunities about technology and providing information about technology, enables older adults to be motivated and confident to participate in a new-to-them tool for communication. It is an opportunity for older adults to learn new skills that will benefit them now and in the future. This workshop will allow older adults to become familiar with how technology will benefit them. This digital is specific to new technology such as Zoom, FaceTime, and Google Meet. For this capstone project, a workshop was created for older adults from the American Legion Auxiliary in Gonzales, California, focusing on utilizing Gmail, Facebook, and Google Meet.
