Have you thought about running an event to target the older generation?
As we all know, the use of ipads, tablets and smartphones has absolutely hit the streets with younger generations this last decade. Awkwardly for grandparents, even their grandchildren can access and use a tablet at a much more advanced level then some older members of their family.
So could you run an event that gives a simple how to guide and lesson to tablets and smartphones aimed for the older generation?
Click here to see a link to a story on BBC that shows when younger people buy an older family member a computer or an iPad, they aren’t around to show them how to use it.
This story shows that Silver Training, which is a tutoring service aimed at older consumers have 31 tutors in the UK helping them with basic training with a range of tasks in to how to use a mouse and keyboard, to setting up email, sending attachments and saving documents.
Could you see yourself running an event at the Festival aimed at teaching the older generation on how to use technology that can make their day to day lives and tasks that bit easier?
