PORT BYRON, IL – State Rep. Mike Smiddy (D-Hillsdale) is hosting a Senior Citizen Technology workshop in partnership with AT&T on Monday, May 6 at 11:00 am at the UAW Hall located at 630 19th Street (at Moline Drive) in East Moline.
“It can be difficult to keep up with the newest technology, especially for senior citizens,” said Smiddy. “This workshop gives seniors an opportunity to learn about how technology can enhance their lives, instead of becoming a barrier.”
At this event, which is free and open to the public, senior citizens can learn about using technology in daily life, ranging from cell phones to wireless pacemakers. The workshop is designed for seniors of all levels of technology literacy and awareness. Attendees may also bring their own devices to receive one-on-one assistance.
“In our increasingly high-tech world, embracing technology increases opportunities for seniors from staying in touch with friends and family to managing their finances,” Smiddy said. “I encourage all local seniors to attend this workshop and learn practical ways to incorporate technology in their lives.”
