smartSENIOR is a project launched in 2012 in Warsaw to counteract digital exclusion among 60+. The initiative is based on workshops where participants are taught the basics of the Internet, the use of social tools, how to use online banking, security measures, etc.
Between 50 and 70 old people will participate in these courses, designed to break down all possible psychological barriers. In fact, a Psychologist and a Lawyer are part ot the team involved in the teaching, in order to make seniors feel confortable with new technologies and overcome the digital gap.
The project started on 1 November 2012 and will continue until 30 June 2013, implemented by Ja Kobieta in collaboration with the Warsaw-Ursynow District Social Aid Centre and the Little brothers of the Poor Warsaw.
