Seniors Initiatives Centre started Bridge the Gap! Project training on August 31. The training takes place in Šilainiai and Šančiai branches of Kaunas City Public Library. 16 older citizens from Šilainiai and Šančiai districts enrolled in the training course in response to wide promotion on social media channels. The training is organized in weekly sessions for two groups of 8 people aged 70+. The first session was used to introduce the project idea and the training curriculum, to evaluate the motivation, experience and expectations of the participants and to practice joining a Zoom class. The participants also practiced the public transport App Trafi in order to find the way to the consumer electronics retail store Avitela. The second session took place there to introduce the participants to smart home technology appliances and gadgets. The third session is planned to give the participants a virtual reality experience in VR Experience Room. After taking a look at digital technologies all around us, the training will continue in the libraries until the middle of October.
