Broken Arrow seniors embrace technology in community class

The Broken Arrow Senior Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma recently hosted a “step into technology” event for seniors to learn about using their smartphones. Seniors like Loreita Belding found the session to be educational and enjoyable. During the event, individuals had the opportunity to have one-on-one sessions with volunteers from Leadership Broken Arrow 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.

Seniors learned how to take better photos, manage contacts, swipe, tap the screen, and make calls on their devices during the event. 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. Participants also received selfie tips and instructions on clearing storage on their devices. Belding expressed excitement about using her newfound knowledge and planned to call her friends to share her improved phone skills.

The success of the event has led to plans for future technology learning events based on feedback from attendees. Attendees appreciated being able to learn at their own pace and having access to individualized help when needed. They also appreciated being able to connect with other seniors who were interested in learning more about technology. Overall, the “step into technology” event was a huge success and has paved the way for future technology-based events at the Broken Arrow Senior Center.
