Who Will Teach Adults About Digital Literacy?

Remember when your parents scrimped and saved to buy you 17 volumes of the 1973 World Book Encyclopedia? Well it's your turn to return the favour. Look through a local Continuing Education catalogue. Contact a nearby seniors centre. If they don't have a workshop that suits the older adult in your life, tell them what you are interested in and why. Digital Literacy is an essential part of lifelong learning. At any age.
