Generations on Line is dedicated to enhancing communication among generations by promoting Internet access and literacy to elders. Aimed at the large population of older Americans who cannot afford or choose not to enroll in computer or Internet training, Generations on Line will:
- Foster and promote Internet literacy, access and skills to the elderly:
- Overcome older persons’ fear and reluctance of the new electronic media; and
- Stimulate and encourage communication and exchange of ideas among generations.
Generations on Line (GoL) has simplified the Internet for seniors. GoL has created, tested and developed a software program that provides on-screen, step-by step instruction to help people over 65 use the Internet. GoL makes this program and its adjunct materials free to seniors through places where they live and congregate, such as nursing homes, HUD subsidized housing, retirement communities, senior centers and public libraries. The program works best with the support of peer coaches to help trouble shoot and guide new users. In 2014, Generations on Line will launch a new tutorial for understanding the iPad; we will seek coaches in the Babby Boomer age range to assist at libraries and senior centers throughout the tri-state area.
