Abstract

Our team worked with the Moreland City Council in Australia to create approachable learning programs for two neighborhood houses that target the older population in Coburg. The goal of these learning programs was to teach basic computer and technology skills that will assist people in communicating with family or friends, shopping and managing finances efficiently, or competing in the job market. From interviews with professionals, we concluded how to best develop learning programs appropriate for this group. Our team created several programs that teach communication through the use of the Internet and computers. We also developed tools for employees to further expand the neighborhood houses’ library of learning programs.
