Children: Let Them Amaze You
Taught by a Teenager
When the telephone was invented, did people have trouble learning how to use one? Technological advances used to come upon us one at a time. Now, new ways of communicating come at us daily. It can be overwhelming, especially for senior citizens. Thankfully, Technocademy has come to the rescue.
Josh Seides founded the nonprofit organization three years ago. He is a junior at his high school in Atlanta, Georgia. He had often helped his grandparents learn how to use their iPhones and iPads and got the idea that he could actually start a service for other senior citizens.
Here's what he put together:
Technocademy, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that provides fun and educational seminars free of charge to residents in participating senior living centers throughout the Atlanta area. Lessons include various topics on technology, ranging from Intro to Computers, to Basics of Email, Cell Phone Boot Camp, to Facebook and Social Media. The Technocademy, Inc. teams travel directly to interested senior living centers and independently sets up and takes down as necessary.
What makes Technocademy, Inc. so special? Well...
• All of our content, from 1-on-1 to our online resources, is free.
• Presentations are completely interactive and are based on the needs of senior citizens.
• Classes are taught by the most tech-savvy of people: TEENAGERS!
• Technocademy comes to you; no need to transport all of your senior citizens to another location.
• We have a strong volunteer and corporate support network that allows us to provide the best possible experience.
