College Students Help Senior
Adults Learn Technology Skills

A joint project between senior adults and college pre-service teachers who are enrolled in technology courses at Sam Houston State University.  The senior adults learn to use computers to improve their technology skills and entertain themselves.  The college students are able to practice teaching and receive feedback from the senior adults about their strengths and weaknesses as an instructor.  We have seen a deeper appreciation of the senior adults by the university students.  In addition, the senior adults have enhanced self-esteem; they have moved into the cyber world and love the possibilities.
