Unequal access to technology for seniors makes already-existing inequalities worse by preventing seniors from taking advantage of opportunities. A key element of Loaves, Fishes & Computers program is the digital literacy department, which assists seniors in overcoming any technological barriers. Seniors can get one-on-one help with any questions they may have about any technology device they possess. Additionally, they collaborate with other organizations to offer tools that might support the well-being of elders. For example, low-cost wifi resources. By offering workshops tailored to the needs of seniors, my project aims to contribute to ending the digital divide. I researched various subjects that would be beneficial and interesting. Since artificial intelligence is still relatively new, we created a presentation on it. The purpose of this workshop was to provide knowledge that participants could use to overcome any challenges and improve their daily lives. It is recommended that the organization keeps developing workshops that assist with everyday problems.
