Senior Techies

RTL students will soon be working with the Senior Techies and technology trainers.

Senior Techies helps seniors to better connect with family and friends using iPads and SmartPhones.

ST delivers training programs with the help of young volunteers to show how easy, fun and entertaining it is to use this new technology.

Senior Techies is a social enterprise, fully supported by volunteers, based in Melbourne, Australia. Senior Techies was founded in early 2013 by Merv Stewart.

Students gain training skills, develop relationships with the community and help older people to find new ways to connect with the world through technology.
