Exploring the World of Smartphones: Senior Center’s Technology Event Empowers and Educates Participants

Seniors in Broken Arrow embrace technology in community class

Joan Lock, a participant in the “step into technology” event hosted by the Broken Arrow Senior Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was excited to learn about her iPhone’s camera functions and storage. She enjoyed receiving personalized help during one-on-one sessions and received tips on taking selfies and clearing storage to optimize her phone.

The event was organized by Ami Bucher, the senior center’s manager, who emphasized the importance of patient instruction and ongoing practice for learning new technology. Loreita Belding, another participant, was thrilled to learn new skills and had a great time at the event.

During the event, volunteers taught seniors how to use their smartphones for tasks like taking photos, managing contacts, and making calls. The positive feedback from participants has prompted the center to plan future technology learning events to continue supporting seniors in their tech education.
