Teen Tech Tutors
The Teen Tech Tutor program is a project which matches students who can provide computer and technology leadership and training for older adults and seniors.
The program is funded by grants from the Department of Community and Economic Development, Comcast, and Verizon.
The Teen Tech Tutor program provides students with opportunities to develop leadership skills, communication, teaching and curriculum.
Each student learns to teach important aspects of computing to a segment of the population who is not familiar with technology. Teen tech tutors introduce library patrons to the computer and assist them in learning how to use technology. The teen tech tutors help patrons overcome apprehension about technology.
Lessons include how to e-mail, use a word processor and internet search engines, work with photos, and conduct genealogical research. Learning skills that come easily to Oak Grove students enable patrons to stay connected with family members and the world around them.
This intergenerational program allows students to strengthen critical thinking and problem-solving skills, improve communication abilities, and interact and share information with a population remarkably different from them. Through student instruction, patrons are able to communicate with family and friends, learn new skills, and gain a sense of accomplishment.
