Many college students indicate that they have very few social interactions with normally aging adults, other than their grandparents. Therefore, ESU has been conducting computer tutoring programs for over 20 years. These pair students with older adults so the older adults can learn more about computer usage. The presentation will cover why this is needed, various formats in which it is done, and a summary of students’ self-reported discoveries about older adults.
