OKLAHOMA CITY – Logging on to the computer is an everyday thing for ‘most’ people.
But what about older adults who are isolated because of a digital divide?
A class at Oklahoma City University is giving seniors citizens a chance to bridge that gap.
Oklahoma ranks 45th in the nation broadband adoption – meaning a lot of people are digitally disconnected.
“Technology is just advancing, so exceptionally that it’s important not to leave anyone behind,” says a volunteer Alexis Embry.
Oklahoma City University’s Inter-generational Computer Center offers programs throughout the city for people wanting to learn a new skill.
Volunteers and students alike say the stories that come after the lessons are rewarding.
