November 1, 2023, 1:00-2:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)on Zoom
Have you ever wondered if ChatGPT and other tech tools with AI can be used to overcome challenges? I’ve been spending many hours exploring the exploding field of artificial intelligence and how people can embrace this change to support their needs at school, at work, and in the community. I’ll share my thoughts about new tools that offer incredible support for improved communication, cognition, literacy, learning, and productivity! We will also talk about ethical and privacy considerations. Everyone who registers for this event will have access to the recording for two weeks.
Cost: $18.00 to join live or watch on demand until November 14, 2023.

FOR EVERYONE WHO WANT TO LEARN TO HELP BOOMERS AND AGING ADULTS WITH THEIR TECH!
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 healthcare shortages, and left older adults stranded.
I created this opportunity for us to learn from each other and join forces to 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 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, this experience is for you!
It all starts on September, 18, 2023!
