Bellmore-Merrick Students Teach Senior Citizens About Technology

The workshop was the second activity in the district’s new senior connection program.

Senior citizens from the Bellmore-Merrick community sharpened their technology skills with a workshop in computer basics this week at the Brookside School. 

Students from KennedyMepham and Calhoun high schools assisted 20 senior citizens in one-on-one instruction on various skills including setting up email on a smartphone, using Skype and utilizing gmail.

The workshop was the second activity in the district’s new senior connection program, which seeks to create a stronger connection between students and seniors and engage seniors with the district on a regular basis.

“With seniors, the main goal here is to have ongoing workshops on computer basics and expose them to the types of devices out there, email and the new social networking sites,” Joseph Innaco, the district’s director of technology and instructional services said.
