"Seniors - Fit in the internet!" - a raving success of GOW17 in Dortmund University
The Get Online Week is over, and Sophie Dietz, the German young I-LINC digital changemaker, reported on the course Seniors: Fit in the internet! .
It was an exciting week, and the course was a raving success. They visited so many different institutions in Dortmund and had the chance to gain a lot of experience.
At the beginning of the course the staff introduced the seniors to the Get Online Week, telling them about institutions, where they can explore the internet and digital media.
Then the active part of the course began, explaining about tablets and different functions. Seniors got to know the camera of the tablet and had enough time to try to make fotos of their peers or do some "selfies". They had a lot of fun!
After having the introduction to Skype, they started chatting and calling each other!
The seniors had many questions about their own hardware, especially about smartphones. Dortmunt staff was pleased to answer every question and gave them some tips.
