Broken Arrow seniors embrace technology in community class

A recent event at the Broken Arrow Senior Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, brought together seniors to learn about using their smartphones. The “Step into Technology” session saw volunteers from Leadership Broken Arrow teaching participants how to take better photos, manage contacts and make calls on their devices.

One of the attendees, Loreita Belding, found the session enjoyable and educational. During the event, individuals had one-on-one sessions with volunteers to address any questions they had. Joan Lock appreciated learning more about the camera and storage on her iPhone as well as understanding where her emails were stored.

Participants also received selfie tips and instructions on clearing storage on their devices. Ami Bucher, the organizer and manager of the senior center, highlighted the importance of patience in teaching seniors about technology as it can be frustrating without proper guidance.

The success of the event has led to plans for future technology learning events based on feedback from attendees. Seniors like Belding are excited to put their newfound knowledge into practice by calling their friends to share their improved phone skills.
