FOR ELDER ADVOCATES, SLPs, OTs, AUDIOLOGISTS & TECH SPECIALISTS
ElderTech Advisor and Teacher Cohort Now Forming
5-Week Collaborative Experience
Are you looking for a career shift or a meaningful way to improve the lives of others? Society needs your expertise and help! COVID has disrupted so many lives, caused concerning healthcare shortages, and left older adults stranded.
I created this opportunity so that we could learn from each other and join forces to significantly improve the lives of seniors. Some of us may work in 1:1 settings, others may hope to teach in-person or online classes, and others may want to act as a “tech-concierge” to meet the needs of specialized tech support in adult communities.
During this 5- week experience, we will explore a range of digital features, resources and strategies so that we can better provide help to Boomers and older adults to leverage the benefits of personal tech. Seniors are falling increasingly behind when it comes to using devices that are now critical for well-being. There are amazing built in features already included in our digital devices, browsers, apps and other tech tools to support accessibility, social interaction and cognitive stimulation.
We need to do more. If you have time and want to get energized by connecting with others who share a passion for helping older adults to get more out of personal tech, I hope you will apply by October, 15, 2022. The experience starts the week of Oct. 24, 2022.

2-Week Tech Savvy Challenge
Is the world of Google Apps a mystery to you? Perhaps you’ve never taken the time to sit down and explore what it means to store documents “in the cloud”, create a Google Document, figure out how to get organized with Google Drive, or finally become more efficient managing your calendar and email.
Most of us do best when someone with experience provides a framework loaded with helpful strategies for breaking down an enormous amount of information into small manageable chunks.
During this 2- week challenge, you will receive new content each day that introduces new Google apps, features and strategies for becoming more proficient using them in a way that meets your individual needs.
Unlike many other Google courses and tutorials, I’ve placed an emphasis on including content about built-in accessibility features and techniques to helping people across the lifespan who have attention, reading, writing, and memory challenges.
Are you concerned that you will get stuck along the way and need extra individualized guidance? I’m here for you! There are plenty of opportunities as you take the course to reach out to me for email or online help and support.
FOR ALLIED HEALTH PROFESSIONALS
Rehab Tech Summit
Let’s leverage the benefits of technology to support learning!
Joan Green will highlight a range of digital features, resources and strategies that allied health professionals can use to help students. There are amazing built in features already included in our digital devices, browsers, apps and other tech tools to support accessibility and inclusion that many SLPs, OTs, educational therapists, educators and families don’t realize exist. As professionals, it’s important that we are aware of the many ways that technology can be used to improve communication, cognition, literacy, and executive functioning to help students overcome barriers to learning and maximize outcomes.
The Rehab Tech Summit is a virtual experience that features talks by industry leaders and rehabilitation professionals in the health tech space. The summit not only aims to spread information, but to promote connection, through one of the many live virtual events held from March 10-12, 2022.
The presentation has been pre-recorded. A live chat is scheduled with Joan on Saturday March 12th at 5 PM EST.
