Madison Beer shows some older adults how to use Instagram at the Senior Planet Exploration Center on Monday (November 25) in New York City.
“My favorite part of the event was to see the positive reactions on the adult’s faces when they quickly understood just how easy it was to use Instagram,” Madison said. “They loved the idea of viewing and sending pictures with the touch of a screen. I really enjoyed teaching and interacting with all of them.”
She added, “I think it’s very important for teens to educate older adults about technology and social media – especially if they do not live close to their family and friends. Technology is a great way to easily communicate with their loved ones on a regular basis and stay connected… like I do with my Nana.”
Grandparents Gone Wired encourages teens to share their tech skills with older adults this holiday season to help them stay connected with loved ones.
